1976 Rep. Primary Only Gerald Ford Can Win Anti Reagan Button (1411):
Pinback button promoting Gerald Ford for president, 1976. Dalo Button & Emblem Co., New York.
The sharp rivalry in the primaries between Gerald Ford, Nixon's appointed successor, and Ronald Reagan, the self-appointed spokesman of conservatives, was prelude to a campaign that saw Ford narrowly defeated in the general election. Reagan warned that Ford would be weak in November, while Ford's backers countered that only divisions within the party could deny him the elected term he deserved for having rehabilitated the image of the White House following Tricky Dick's disgraceful exit.
This uncommon pinback was sold at the Republican National Convention in Kansas City.
