Democratic Donkey Pewter Pin

Item#: 320627




It may seem like an odd symbol for a political party, but there's a reason why the Democratic Party is represented by a donkey. It goes back to the early 19th century during democrat Andrew Jackson's presidential campaign. When he was called a jackass by his opponents, he embraced the image and made it part of his campaign, giving it a positive meaning that his opponents never intended.

Made of pewter in the USA, this lapel pin comes with a red, white, and blue ribbon backing that not only adds a patriotic flair but also highlights the mascot's distinctly American origin and identity.
