Okay, this is weird but it’s the truth.
Trump supporters with ties to Dr. Ben Carson and Newt Gingrich have founded Amish PAC, which aims to launch the most ambitious get-out-the-vote efforts among the devout religious sect to date.
Newt Gingrich and Ben Carson are going after the Amish vote for Donald Trump.
I know. It kinda takes your breath away.
They counted and there are 70,000 Amish in Ohio and Pennsylvania. A whopping 13% of them voted in the last presidential election, mostly for Romney.
“I’ve got to say, I don’t know that we’re going to change voting habits drastically,” Ben Walters, a fundraiser for the PAC, conceded in an interview with Politico on Friday. “But we can only help them.”
“In Florida in 2000, it came down to a couple polling places,” he added. “What if that happened in Ohio or Pennsylvania? It could.”
Yeah, and you’re going to convince Amish people to vote for the first time Trump/Gingrich – a pair with 6 marriages between them. It could happen.
Thanks to Bryan for the heads up.
