This 1928 poster marked the rise of the Farmer-Labor Party, which grew out of the alliance of two progressive political parties that were committed to the rights of workers and farmers in Minnesota to earn a decent living. From 1930-1938 the Farmer-Labor party was the most successful state-level third party in the United States. It controlled the governorship, senate, and many house seats in the state legislature.
