- This cartoon concerns whether President Woodrow Wilson, whose first term was entering its final year, would run for a second term. State primary laws require candidates to declare their intention to run by a particular date, and Ohio's deadline was fast approaching. This cartoon, printed in the weeks leading up to Ohio's filing date, shows Miss Ohio inquiring if a bashful-looking Wilson would declare his candidacy before the state's deadline. Wilson eventually submitted his name to comply with Ohio state law but did not publicly declare his candidacy until later.
