This political poster shows Governor John Carlin's first gubernatorial race against Governor Robert Bennett. The poster depicts a Kansas taxpayer who needs "Help" from soaring state expenditures. The solution offered by Democratic candidate John Carlin is to put a lid on taxes and spending. Carlin goes on to illustrate his political ideas through strategic images and brief political statements. The strategy paid off when Carlin was elected the fortieth governor of Kansas.
