Title: Elect! Loomis.

Description: Campaign poster in red, white and blue that reads: "Wisconsin needs a Governor. Elect! Loomis." Includes a head and shoulders portrait of Orland Steen Loomis. After narrowly losing the 1940 election for Governor of Wisconsin as a Progressive, Loomis ran again in 1942, defeating the incumbent Governor Julius Heil. He died suddenly of a heart attack a month before he was to take office, and the Republican Lieutenant Governor Walter Samuel Goodland served all of Loomis's term as acting governor.
