If there's one place in Southern California where the most passionate liberals and conservatives are likely to bump into each other, it's the new Politeez campaign store located in Upland, CA.

The owner of a brand new political t-shirt store admits that a little controversy can be good for business. However, Dan Jordan says he doesn't want a bunch of crazed voters squaring off in his parking lot. Mr. Jordan, owner of 'Politeez', said it's no coincidence his shop is located right next store to the Upland Police Department.

With the 2006 mid-term elections less than six months away, the Politeez Campaign Store has opened its doors, selling all manner of politically-charged, campaign related merchandise -- Everything from 'Border Patrol' t-shirts and 'Pro-War' caps to 'Al Gore' posters and buttons that read 'No Bush, Know Peace'.

“Politics can be a very sensitive issue for some people and much of our merchandise really pushes the limit as to what is socially and politically acceptable. We sell the kind of stuff that is normally only found on the Internet,” Jordan said.

After more than four years in the political t-shirt business, he learned that many people simply wanted to have their items the same day or didn't want to pay shipping charges or were uncomfortable submitting personal information Online.

Politeez has also tapped into a niche, selling campaign items emblazoned with the logos and names of current, local and national politicians. High on the store wall are t-shirt designs for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Hillary Clinton as well as Diane Feinstein, Condi Rice and Joe Baca. Jordan says they have plans to design shirts and buttons for many more candidates, including those running for mayor and even school board.

The Politeez Campaign Store is located at: 1527 West 13th Street in Upland CA. For directions you can visit their website at
