We’re still awaiting decisions from the Killer B’s — Biden, Beto, Bullock — as to whether they will run for president. But for now, let’s focus on the Killer R’s — those “R” politicians whose buttons need identifying.
As our fellow political junkies know, for some time now we’ve been showing photos of unknown buttons, arranged alphabetically by candidate names, for you to help identify. We can’t make heads or tails of these candidates, most of whom we’ve never heard of. And when we see a “Smith for Congress” or a “Jones for Senator” button, how do we know which Smith or which Jones? So we’ve been posting pictures of these buttons, hoping you will have the answer. Often, you have come through, which is most appreciated.
Thus far, we’ve completed the first 16 letters of the alphabet. (Check out our previous “Who Dats”: Unknowns beginning with the Letter A, Letter B, two pages for Letter C (here and here), Letter D, Letter E, Letter F, Letter G, Letter H, Letter I, Letter J, Letter K, Letter L, Letter M, Letter N, Letter O and Letter P.) Let the record show we don’t have enough unknown Q candidates to list. We even have one of buttons with pictures only — no names. That’s even harder to decipher.
We now bring you to the Letter R. Any idea on who these candidates R? Thanks!
For the record, three buttons in the first row — the two for Fred Reuss and one from Joan Rosenthal — are thought to be from Queens, N.Y. That’s all we got.
