Champ Clark Honey Shuck Restoration Inc. is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization that traditionally sponsors stump speaking events during election years. The term derives from an early American practice in which candidates for public offices traveled from town to town and gave their addresses atop sawed-off tree stumps.
