After a successful career as a State Senator, George Moscone launched a formal campaign for Governor in 1973. In a crowded field, he attempted to clinch the Democratic nomination but ultimately withdrew after realizing he could no longer compete along politicians with higher name recognition such as Jerry Brown, son of former Governor Pat Brown. The Campaigns Series consists of materials related to Moscone’s State Senate, Governor, and Mayoral campaigns. Records include: press releases, campaign schedules, flyers, correspondence, and bumper stickers.
