Lyndon B. Johnson campaign stick.
Although there was no official campaign cane for Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964, some local supporters made them. This cane, done by a Texas supporter, was made out of wood, with a red cap. It has the slogan "walk away with LBJ." The official campaign slogan was actually "All the way withy LBJ." Johnson ran with Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota, and he trounced Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona and his running mate, Congressman William Miller of New York.
