Send a Young, Aggressive Leader to Congress VOTE for EDWARD BREEN for CONGRESSMAN Nov. 3rd, 1942 DEMOCRATIC TICKET EDWARD BREEN This is a critical year. Not just any congressman will do. Ed Breen is a young, aggressive liberal. He is 43 years old, a veteran of World War No. 1 . He is one of the outstanding younger men of the state. He has been county attorney and state senator of his own county of Webster. His platform is this: Win the war — win it at the earliest possible moment. Get the boys back home. His opponent is 75 years old — old and tired, a reactionary obstructionist. He voted agajnst every defense measure except one. He voted to loan Great Britain $7,000,000,000. The boys in service deserve the best Congressman we can send to Washington— a man who is able and willing.
