|Description||This political fan is composted of a piece of rectangular white cardboard with rounded corners which has been stapled to a thin wooden handle. Blue text on the white cardboard reads "I'm a / Louie B. Nunn / fan." The two staples are 3.5 inches apart.|
Louie Broady Nunn was the 52nd governor of Kentucky from 1967 until 1971. This fan is probably from Nunn's unsuccessful run for a second term in the governor's office in 1979 against Democrat John Y. Brown, Jr. He also unsuccessfully challenged Walter "Dee" Huddleston in the 1972 senatorial election.
This object was donated on January 14, 1994 by Drexell 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.
