Description This is a blue plastic comb that was created for the re-election campaign of state senator Fred Bradley. The comb is larger on the proper left side and gradually narrows towards the proper right side, with the larger bristles on the proper left and the smaller bristles on the proper right. There is an inscription in white that reads, "RE-ELECT SENATOR BRADLEY" along the top of the comb. A pocket-clip is attached to the top of the left side, and raised from it is the word "UNBREAKABLE."
Notes The items in this collection were gathered by the KHS staff in 1994 in an attempt to get campaign items from all of the members of the 1994 Kentucky General Assembly. According to a letter to the members of the assembly from Dr. Klotter, the staff had noticed a gap in the political collection in the area of state legislative campaign memorabilia. The members of the assembly were asked to donate one campaign item. Many did not donate anything and others donated several items. This artifact was donated by Fred Bradley.
