All the Way with LBJ 1964 Reproduction Campaign Women's Relaxed T-Shirt
$26.00 - $32.00
Lyndon Baines Johnson 1964 campaign t-shirt. Featuring the "All the Way with LBJ" official slogan and the President's trademark hat.
Reproduced by the Liberty Maniacs History Department, this one comes straight from the ranks of LBJ and Herbert H. Humphrey's campaign. Old LBJ chose H.H.H. to balance out the ticket that year and get liberals on board. Humphrey's right hand in the St. Paul Democratic machine at the time was none other than Dan's aunt Patricia.
Johnson trounced his eventual Republican opponent and Senate colleague Barry Goldwater by the widest margin of popular votes in American history in `64. He rocked him in the electoral college as well 10-to-1. It was the most significant electoral massacre in the GOP's history.
The Republicans didn't have to wait long for a successful candidate. With LBJ's decision not to run, the Democrats had a wide open field of candidates amidst political chaos and division over the Vietnam War, Great Society legislation, and numerous cultural movements pulling the party in different directions. Humphrey and Muskie could only muster 13 states in a solid loss against former Vice President Richard Nixon, with Democratic voters in 5 Deep South states going with independent George Wallace. Despite the popular vote only being around half a million in difference, Nixon reached 301 electoral votes with his home state of California behind him.
This just might be the softest and most comfortable women's t-shirt you'll ever own. Combine the relaxed fit and smooth fabric of this tee with jeans to create an effortless every-day outfit, or dress it up with a jacket and dress pants for a business casual look.
