“Keep YOUR MAN in Congress” shouted the leaflet for Representative Bob Kastenmeier of Wisconsin. Such flyers were common campaign handouts in the middle and late 20th century. Kastenmeier was a popular, principled Member of the House for 32 years. A veteran of World War II, he was skeptical of military action, and he became one of the first Congressmen to oppose the Vietnam War.
