Barack Obama State Senate 13th District Business Card For Sale

Barack Obama State Senate 13th District Business Card

With 51% of the vote and 303 electoral votes made President Obama a two-term president. Get your piece of history here and celebrate 4 more years of Hope and Change.

Thesebusiness cards were handed out at the 1997 Black Caucaus in Springfield, Il by an unknown politician that would later become our 44th president. This business card is a great addition to any collector..Hundreds of these cardswere handed out at the Black Caucaus rally in Springfield, Ill andwho knowshow many are still in circulation? Itis so old that it does not even have an email address. Mint condition and preserved in a baseball card sleeve for years. Barack Obama's US Senate cards are being sold for $500 or more on and those are very recent. These are being sold for much less and are more rare. I want to share this piece of history with other supporters of this great president that we have elected.

Obama was elected to the Illinois Senate in 1996, succeeding State Senator Alice Palmer as Senator from Illinois's 13th District, which then spanned Chicago South Side neighborhoods from Hyde Park-Kenwood south to South Shore and west to Chicago Lawn.[41] Once elected, Obama gained bipartisan support for legislation reforming ethics and health care laws.[42] He sponsored a law increasing tax credits for low-income workers, negotiated welfare reform, and promoted increased subsidies for childcare.[43] In 2001, as co-chairman of the bipartisan Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, Obama supported Republican Governor Ryan's payday loan regulations and predatory mortgage lending regulations aimed at averting home foreclosures.[44]

Obama was reelected to the Illinois Senate in 1998, defeating Republican Yesse Yehudah in the General Election, and reelected again in 2002.[45] In 2000, he lost a Democratic primary run for the U.S. House of Representatives to four-term incumbent Bobby Rush by a margin of two to one.[46][47]

In January 2003, Obama became chairman of the Illinois Senate's Health and Human Services Committee when Democrats, after a decade in the minority, regained a majority.[48] He sponsored and led unanimous, bipartisan passage of legislation to monitor racial profiling by requiring police to record the race of drivers they detained and legislation making Illinois the first state to mandate videotaping of homicide interrogations.[43][49] During his 2004 general election campaign for U.S. Senate, police representatives credited Obama for his active engagement with police organizations in enacting death penalty reforms.[50] Obama resigned from the Illinois Senate in November 2004 following his election to the U.S. Senate.
