Frankoma Political mugs have been a mainstay of the Frankoma line since the late 1960s. The GOP Elephant mugs that are, the Donkey mugs didn't show up until 1975 a few years after the death of founder John Frank. Why? He was a staunch Republican and produced the first mugs in 1968 as a fundraiser for the Republican Party. 1969 saw the actual start of the series of GOP mugs.
