Campaign Button "Galifianakis for U.S. Senate," 1972; 2.54 cm.
North Carolina Collection Accession Nos.: CK.999.4/999.5

Democrat Nick Galifianakis ran against North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms in 1972. During that campaign Galifianakis made light of his long "non-Anglo" sounding name by dividing it and putting it on two buttons. The buttons responded to the slogan "Jesse Helms: He's one of us".
