Jimmy Carter peanut campaign cane.
In 1976, in addition to the nostalgia cane done in conjunction with the Bicentennial, Democratic candidate Jimmy Carter produced a cane with a peanut-shaped handle and his name on it. Carter was a peanut farmer, and the cane, made of metal, built on his personal story. Carter ran with Senator Walter Mondale of Minnesota, a protégé of Hubert Humphrey. They defeated President Ford and Senator Robert Dole.
