This cartoon concerns the 1920 Presidential election. In the late summer of 1920, the Presidential contest between Democratic nominee James M. Cox and Republican nominee Warren G. Harding was beginning to intensify. However, the dominant news story was not the campaign–it was baseball sensation Babe Ruth’s unstoppable first season with the New York Yankees.

In this cartoon both Presidential candidates are shown pondering Ruth’s secret of success, though the White House is their “real home plate.” Harding hit a “home run” in the November elections and beat Cox by a landslide.

This primary source comes from the Records of the U.S. Senate.
