Sale Price $63.00
LLOYD BENTSEN. Signature: "Lloyd Bentsen/Texas", 3½x2 card. In 1970, attorney and WWII veteran Lloyd Millard Bentsen, Jr. (1921-2006), who had been a U.S. Representative from Texas from 1948-1955, defeated George H.W. Bush to become U.S. Senator from Texas, serving from 1971-1993. In 1988, he was Michael Dukakis' running mate for Vice President, becoming noted for a remark to Republican vice presidential nominee Dan Quayle, who compared his Congressional experience to that of John F. Kennedy. Bentsen's retort: "Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy." Although the Dukakis/Bentsen team was soundly defeated by the Bush/Quayle ticket, Bentsen would later serve as Clinton's Secretary of the Treasury from 1993-1994. Staple holes and impression at upper right margin. Fine condition.
