George H.W. Bush is doing his part to help Republicans win the 2014 midterm elections — by letting the party give away socks with his signature for a donation of at least $35.

The 41st president is now known for his love of crazy socks, the more zany and colorful the better for Bush. He’s frequently photographed wearing socks that defy any fashion sense, and even gave President Obama a fun pair last summer.

The RNC’s limited-edition socks have colorful stripes, the former president’s signature and the party’s elephant logo.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus predicted in a tweet that the Bush socks “will be gone fast.”  Proceeds will go toward funding the Republican Party’s 50-state effort this year to expand the House majority and take back the Senate.
