this large red, white, and blue button promoted the presidential campaign of Dwight D. Eisenhower. Originally from Abilene, Kansas, Eisenhower was the Supreme Allied Commander during World War II and later the 34th President of the United States. The phrase "I like Ike" was a clever play on Eisenhower's name and proved popular during his 1952 campaign. Eisenhower grew up in Abilene, Kansas.
