Stassen Ad in The American Jewish World

The Stassen campaign released this advertisement in The American Jewish World in response to the controversy over Are They Communists or Catspaws, an antisemitic pamphlet written by Ray P. Chase accusing Stassen’s opponent, Elmer Benson, of harboring communist sympathies. Stassen states nothing about antisemitism or red baiting in his ad, but identifies himself as a liberal.
