Scope and content

The Campaign Records is composed of material related to all of Daschle's campaign races, from his first campaign for a U.S. House of Representative seat in 1978 to his final campaign for the U.S. Senate seat in 2004. While each campaign is unique much of the material in each series is similar. Folders consist of advertising, campaign literature, media clippings, correspondence, financial records, opposition research, issue files, and polling results. Researchers will find the 2004 Campaign Manager Files interesting as they present a perspective on how a senate race is run from a manager’s point of view.
