Jackson Campaign

Mrs. Roy Kaufman presents a Green Bay Packers' helmet to presidential hopeful Senator Henry Jackson. This photograph was taken in December 1971 during his first run for nomination as Democratic presidential candidate. He dropped out of the race the following May after a weak showing in the Ohio primary elections. George McGovern eventually won the 1972 nomination. Jackson ran again in 1976 but dropped out in early May of that year after running out of cash.
