A deal at twice the price?

TACOMA -- State conventions are always great places for campaign kitsch, from bejeweled elephants to catchy bumper stickers. The Tacoma gathering was no exception. One big seller was the Ron Paul chocolate bar, which featured the visage of the Texas Congressman surrounded by stars stamped on one side, along with the phrases "Champion of the Constitution" and "Dark chocolate standard."

At $3.95 a bar they were moving well, a woman at the table said.

Romney supporters could get a range of gear, from tie-dyed shirts to a semi-personalized, red, white and blue campaign button, with their name sharing the circle with "MITT" for $3. The supporter’s name, however, was appropriately smaller.
