It is because Heinz Ketchup heiress Teresa Heinz-Kerry is married to John Kerry, the Democrat candidate for US presidency. The W in W Ketchup allegedly stands for Washington, as in first US president George. With a minimum order of four bottles, they’re presumably only targeting Republican voters who get through quite a lot of ketchup.
