This button is a little strange because it associates Cox with alcohol, which he did not endorse. Cox didn’t really focus on the issue of prohibition, but did indicate that he was in support of it. So, this button could be anti-Cox or could be a poor attempt by the Cox camp to promulgate an anti-drinking message. Either way, it makes for an interesting collector’s item.
