Product Description

Authentic "Pat Brown For Me" California Gubernatorial Campaign Pinback Pin

Pin reads "Pat Brown for me" in blue print (BROWN is in red print) on a white background. The pin is approximately 1" in diameter and in decent overall condition as seen in the photo! There is a slight X scratched on the pin over the word me and the W in Brown. The pin was produced by an unknown company but there are 2 markings stamped on the underside of the rim. I am not sure whether this pin was made for his 1958, 1962, or 1966 campaign.

Edmund Gerald "Pat" Brown, Sr. (April 21, 1905 – February 16, 1996) was the 32nd Governor of California, serving from 1959 to 1967, and the father of current Governor of California Jerry Brown. In 1958, he was the Democratic nominee for Governor of California. He defeated U.S. Senator William F. Knowland by a margin of nearly 20 percentage points and a plurality of over 1 million votes. He was reelected in 1962, defeating former Vice President Richard Nixon by 52% to 47%. He lost the 1966 election to another future Republican President, Ronald Reagan. Reagan unseated Brown with 58%, winning a plurality of some 990,000 votes. Brown's two terms were marked by an enormous water-resources development program. The California Aqueduct built as part of the program now bears his name.
