In what might be the punniest piece of campaign merchandise so far this year, attorney general candidate Josh Stein is selling beer steins on his website.
“Make any day Oktoberfest whether with this impressive stein on the shelf or in-hand,” says the $13.99 listing on the store section of Stein’s website.
It appears, though, that the Stein steins won’t be raising money for the campaign since the merchandise is sold through Cafepress.com and doesn’t require a campaign contribution.
Dome asked Stein who came up with the stein idea. “Stein did,” Stein replied by email.
No word yet on whether Stein’s Republican opponent, state Sen. Buck Newton, will offer Fig Newton snacks or taxidermied male deer heads as part of his campaign merchandise.
