Description This is a white and green political bumper sticker. The left background is white and the right background is green. Green and white text across the sticker reads "Re-Elect / Carter Mondale."
Notes James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr. was the 39th President of the United States and was the recipient of the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize. Before he became President, Carter served as a U.S. Naval officer, was a peanut farmer, served two terms as a Georgia State Senator and one as the Governor of Georgia.

Walter Mondale was defeated by incumbent Republican Ronald Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. Mondale had been the 42nd Vice President of the United States (1977-1981) under President Jimmy Carter, and was a United States Senator from Minnesota between 1964 and 1976. He was also appointed the United States Ambassador to Japan in 1993 by President Bill Clinton.

This object was donated on 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
