During elections in the nineteenth century it was quite common for campaign newspapers to be published supporting a specific candidate or party. These ephemeral publications were short-lived and are often difficult to locate today. The Clay Tribune supported the Whig Party and the Sober Second Thought… supported the Democratic Party. Both published in New York during the election of 1844, they are going head to head with exaggerated political discourse.
