Back In The Day

Surfing around PJ Media, we come to this photo, showing political give-aways from back in the day.

Yep, cigarettes.  The caption reads:
Nancy Adams, 20, of Beuchel, Kentucky, holds brands of cigarettes named “I Like Ike” and “Stevenson For President”, novelty blends manufactured by Tobacco Blending Corporation, Aug. 9, 195,2 in Louisville, Kentucky. By comparing sales volume of each brand the company hopes to weed out the most popular candidate for president. (AP Photo/H.B. Littell)
Pretty girl.  Here's a closeup.

I don't think that giving away cigarettes would help a candidate today.  Heh!

Cigarettes - probably not. South Texas Politiceras aren't above bribes, rides to polls and other inducements to vote Democrat. Long storied history in a region of about 80% steady Blue counties.
