Additional Information: 

Robert Joseph "Bob" Dole was a Republican Congressman from Kansas 1961 to 1969 and senator from 1969 to 1996. While he was a Senator, Dole set the record as the longest-serving Republican leader and is known for passing legislation to make food stamps more available. He ran for vice presidential nominee in the 1976 election and entered the 1996 U.S. Presidential election; however, he did not win the election in either race. This token is from one of Dole’s many elections for public office.
