CFTR Covers

Ronald Reagan created the political action committee (PAC) Citizens For The Republic (CFTR) to raise funds for his presidential campaign and needed a cartoonist to lighten the subjects he chose to address in his monthly newsletter, similar to President Obama's current marketing strategy that aims infomails at his constituents.  Most covers were drawn a month ahead.  Different styles of art depended on the story – harsh ink, soft pencil or smooth brush for shock news, soft stories or features.  Capitol Hill was a favorite category.
