William Belser Spong Jr.

A poster from Willam Belser Spong Jr.'s U.S. senatorial campaign in 1966 features the tag line, "The man for today." Focusing his campaign on his relative youth and his forward-looking leadership, Spong defeated his older and more conservative opponent, the incumbent A. Willis Robertson.
