My father was actively involved in two congressional campaigns. He supported the Republican candidates for Congress in the 2nd District in Oklahoma in 1964 and 1966.
He’d give me a dime for every bumper sticker I could persuade neighbors to put on their cars for the GOP standard bearer. I recall the 1964 candidate George Lange being in our home when I came home from school for lunch. My best friend Phil Taylor was impressed: “Is Barry Goldwater coming to your house tomorrow?”
I remember attending rallies for the 1966 candidate Denzel Garrison. Neither candidate was successful, both lost to incumbent Democrat Ed Edmondson.
