Blasts from the past: Archived campaign lit

OLYMPIA -- The Secretary of State's Office blog has a daily feature this week on campaign literature from past campaigns in Washington state collected by the State Archives. It's in honor of something or other that happens next Tuesday.

Today's comes from Dan Evans' 1964 campaign for governor, with a very earnest Evans looking out from a bumper sticker or mailer. (The shape conforms to a bumper sticker, but the photo suggests it's printed on something a bit higher quality.)

Monday's was an ad from one of Scoop Jackson's presidential runs.

Kind of makes one wonder: What campaign materials would be worth archiving from 2010?
