Keep Cass in Congress — Cass Ballenger, a North Carolina Republican, was first elected to Congress in 1986 and served until retiring in 2004.

A — The omnipresent button purchased from a NYC anarchist bookstore, circa 1973.

Re-elect BLANK for Governor — A sample button from the 1940s/’50s where the candidate’s name was left out.

A — see button #2.

So, when you combine Cass + A + BLANK + A, you probably end up with …

Casablanca.  The classic 1942 movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. 

And here’s looking at Leah Rubin of Wildwood, Mo., our randomly-selected winner.  We’ll always have Wildwood.
