Pinback button promoting Charles Hughes for governor of New York, 1906.

With the enthusiastic endorsement of President Theodore Roosevelt, the obscure government attorney Charles Hughes defeated the flamboyant newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst for governor of New York. Reelected in 1908, Hughes resigned to accept an appointment to the Supreme Court by President William Howard Taft in 1910. In 1916, he would receive the Republican nomination for president, and would narrowly lose to Woodrow Wilson. He would later serve as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
