POLITICAL EVENT

Working on a shoestring campaign budget, Dole organized an entourage that was equal parts Fourth of July parade and traveling Wild West Show. There were "Bob-O-Links" led by ukulele-playing songsters and free cups of Dole pineapple juice dispensed by smiling "Dolls for Dole." These factors helped lead to Dole winning his first congressional election.
