George W. Bush library exhibit focuses on elections

DALLAS (AP) — An exhibit opening at the George W. Bush Presidential Center will focus on the history of campaigns and elections in the U.S.

The exhibit, called “Path to the Presidency,” opens Tuesday at the center on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas. It will give visitors a look at the history of presidential campaigns.

The exhibit, which runs through Oct. 9, includes a letter from George Washington in which he declines calls for a third term and the sunglasses Bill Clinton wore in his 1992 campaign appearance on “The Arsenio Hall Show.” Also included are campaign medals and buttons dating back to the 1800s.

Interactive elements will include a teleprompter from which guests can deliver historic acceptance speeches and a photo booth to create campaign posters.
