Notes W. Terry McBrayer is a Democratic lobbyist, attorney, and former politician from Lexington, Kentucky. McBrayer served in the Kentucky House of Representatives, representing Kentucky's 98th district (Greenup County), from 1966 until his retirement in 1976. He was an unsuccessful candidate for governor in 1979, losing in the Democratic primary to John Y. Brown, Jr. This poster is from his run for Governor in 1979.

This object was donated December 30, 1986 by Drexell R. Davis. Davis, a self-described "Yellow Dog" Democrat, held several elected positions in the Kentucky state government. His thirty-three years of public service prompted his interest in collecting political memorabilia.
