Photographs of Jonathan Binkley and George W. Bush with a United States seal and a yellow star between them and red and blue text surrounding.
Jonathan Binkley is the chair of the Republican Political Items Collection for the American Political Items Collectors, which was founded in 1945 as a non-profit organization dedicated to studying, preserving, and collecting political and presidential items. In the 2004 presidential election, Republican candidate George W. Bush ran against Democratic candidate John Kerry. In 2003, however, the official candidates had not yet been chosen. During the primary elections, there had been 15 Republican candidates running for presidency. The main Republican candidates were George W. Bush and Bill Wyatt. Binkley had presumably chosen Bush as the Republican candidate before the primaries had come to a close.
