This button was produced to support Robert "Bob" Bily for Illinois' 8th District in the 1976 election. Unfortunately, Bily only captured 14% of the vote, losing to his like-minded opponent, Democrat Harry "Bus" Yourell. Upon his retirement in 1985 after a successful career in business, Joseph Robert Bily moved to Arlington, Texas. Bily died there in 2005 at the age of 82.
