Running against Hoover in the Election of 1928 was Al Smith. Smith was the first Roman Catholic to ever be nominated for President. This caused quite a stir, and many campaign items center solely on Smith’s Catholicism. “A Democrat for Hoover” buttons were made, insinuating that even a Democrat would vote for Hoover over a Catholic.
