Barbara Deuschle of Hot Springs, a delegate to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., displays political autographs she has been collecting since 1998.
TAMPA, Fla. - While some people who follow politics collect campaign buttons, for Republican National Convention delegate Barbara Deuschle of Hot Springs, it is all about the autographs.
Deuschle began collecting political autographs back in 1998 on a yard-long piece of vinyl, and it is all filled up. She was all smiles Monday morning after former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee signed her scroll, as did U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., who had previously signed back when he served in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“It’s my sixth convention,” Deuschle said.
Deuschle proudly pointed to a signature she obtained four years ago in Minnesota - Mitt Romney.
