How to Play
ScuttleButton, as you may know, is that weekly waste-of-time exercise where we post a vertical sequence of campaign buttons. Your job is to take one word (or concept) per button and add ’em up to arrive at a famous name or familiar expression. Guess the correct phrase and you could be the proud winner of the coveted Political Junkie button!

Elect Amoth Governor — Ralph Amoth lost the 1946 Republican gubernatorial primary in Wisconsin to Gov. Walter Goodland.

Ann Richards Governor/Phone Team — See above.
Walter Huddleston/D/U.S. Senate — Walter “Dee” Huddleston, a Democrat, was first elected in Kentucky in 1972.
So, when you combine Amoth + Ann + Ann + D, you kinda get …
Amoth and Andy. It’s that TV show from the 1950s, with a lisp.
And the randomly selected winner is … Jim McSherry of Frederick, Md.
