(This fall I'm doing a series on campaign signs. Part one and part two.)
In Billings, Montana this week, another sign (not shown) half a block away advertised this as one party's headquarters:

That's right. The Democratic headquarters is a labor union hall where you can also stop in for cold refreshment -- a pleasant place, though smoky.
Some of the Democratic signs were noteworthy in their own right:

This one certainly passes the eye-catching bar, though it can't be called informative. I bet that supporters enjoy displaying it.

The sign farm concept itself is very effective. Anyone passing through downtown Billings will note this display.
