A little negative campaigning from the past

Here's a little item for you people who don't believe in so-called "negative campaigning." From 1940, a campaign card for Hughes County Sheriff. Winfred Ewert, Republican candidate (in what I think we can assume was the primary) is calling county government an organized ring in his hand-typed postcard.

State Auditor Rich Sattgast had this shown to him, and was nice enough to get me a copy. Thanks Rich, and thanks Winfred, for promoting issue oriented campaigns over 65 years ago.

But did he win? That is the question.
