For his first House campaign, Representative Bill Hefner of North Carolina used his previous professional experience as a gospel singer and broadcaster in his choice of promotional materials. This record, which includes a vocal performance and a speech, was part of his winning campaign. The recording is integrated into the printed sleeve, with instructions to fold the front cover over the back, and place the entire booklet on a phonograph. His platform included renewing public trust in government and lowering the tax burden of people with low incomes.
