Obama and McCain masks are selling out as consumers plan to wear their favorite candidate this Halloween.

Bruce McDaniel, Party City Manager, says, "Obama was the first to go...We've been out of Obama for 2 weeks and I just sold the last McCain today."

According to Amazon.com, Obama mask sales are leading McCain sales by 14-percent.

"I was here during the last election and Bush was the first to sell out," McDaniel says, "So, if you judge based on history, Obama was gone long before anything else was."

The strained economy does not seem to be limiting sales this holiday as well. The National Retail Federation estimates total Halloween spending to reach 5.7 billion dollars.

    They are a hit unless you use a certain mask, attach it to a dummy and hang it on the UK Campus then it's a hate crime.
