Seems like the Republicans are doing a great job mowing over Springfield, Illinois! In preparation for the 1936 election year, the Republican party held a “grassroots” convention in Springfield Illinois to rally the party and raise hopes for the next year.

Roosevelt was upholding the constitution.
