Looking to get a foot up on its competitors, the Republican National Committee is selling off George H.W. Bush-styled socks to raise money for the party.

In an fundraising email, the RNC says donors can join Mr. Bush in supporting the party as it prepares for the 2014 midterm elections, where it hopes to strengthen its House majority and flip control of the U.S. Senate.

“I’m a self-proclaimed sock man. The louder, the brighter, the crazier the pattern — the better,” Mr. Bush said in the email.

For $35, supporters can snag a pair of the striped yellow, orange, green and blue socks.

“You will receive a special-edition pair of socks designed exclusively by the RNC in honor of President George H.W. Bush,” the RNC website says. “These limited-edition socks are embroidered with the Republican elephant and signed by President George H.W. Bush.”
