A Milwaukee, Wisconsin home is at it again, going big for Halloween with a political twist.

With some calling this presidential election scary, Andy Reid and his partner Jaimie Beauchamp couldn't resist.

"We just felt it was the perfect theme this year considering who's running and all that good stuff," Reid said.

Reid said art imitates reality here at their home near Idaho Street and Clement Avenue in Milwaukee's Bay View neighborhood.

"We have the candidates, they are debating which is always something scary this year," Reid said.

Plus the White House, paparazzi and some really aged Secret Service.

They're hoping the display draws big crowds who donate to Pathfinders, a Milwaukee organization that helps troubled kids and teens. Last year, their Wizard of Oz display helped raise $6,000.

"It's awesome, that's a great feeling, the more money people can give and help other people that's awesome," Reid said.

While the display is about raising money for kids in need, Jamie and Andy have fun with it too. They said doing it reminds them of what Halloween is all about.

"Makes you feel like a kid again, when you're an adult you lose part of that aspect of being a kid with the trick or treating, this allows us to be involved with the kids during trick or treat and throughout the season," Beauchamp said.

Big kids at heart, helping other kids. Reid and Beauchamp's Halloween House is on display and lit up every night until about midnight. They're expecting up to 1,500 trick or treaters on Halloween.
