Editorial cartoon showing a saddle sitting on a fence in the foreground. It is labeled "Gen. Walker candidacy." In the background two disgruntled fans look. One carries a sign, "What we need is a man on horseback." The other is labeled "right wing extremists." Edwin Walker, a member of the John Birch Society, had been recently removed from his Army field command. He was last in a slate of six candidates running as a Democratic Party candidate for governor of Texas.
