Secaucus, New Jersey Pig Farmer Henry Krajewski, was a six-foot-four-inch tall two-hundred and fifty-pound candidate who ran for the office of the president in 1952, 1956, and 1960 as Independent Party contender.
One of Krajewski’s campaign slogans was “A Pig in Every Pot” reminiscent of Herbert Hoover’s catchphrase “A Chicken in Every Pot and a Car in Every Garage” used when he ran for president and won in 1928. The lead image shows Henry and his Buick parked in Exeter, New Hampshire on May 14, 1951 while traveling on the 1952 campaign trail.
