The Amish Political Action Commitee sent out this statement on Sunday afternoon:
PAC seeks to register and turn out Amish voters in key swing states OH and PA
LANCASTER, PA. – Amish PAC, the first and only political action committee dedicated to getting Amish & Mennonite voters to the polls officially announces its endorsement of Donald J. Trump for the 2016 presidential race. The Amish PAC’s outreach coordinator Ben King who is formerly Amish and a resident of Lancaster, PA has issued the following statement:
“We have concluded that Hillary Clinton’s disturbing rap sheet of scandals, inappropriate conduct as Secretary of State that put the nation’s security at risk and mishandling of the Benghazi attacks that resulted in American lives lost make her categorically unfit to be President of the United States. Today, we are proud to endorse Donald Trump for president. Amish PAC is confident that a Trump administration will bring the change this country so desperately needs.”
Amish PAC is endorsing the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump for president and will commit resources to turning out Amish and Mennonite voters on his behalf for the following reasons.
• Trump won Lancaster County in the heart of Amish country during the GOP primaries by a resounding margin.
• Trump is a savvy, entrepreneurial businessman who built his success with his work ethic.
• Trump will appoint Supreme Court Justices in the mold of the late Justice Scalia who interpret the constitution rather than left-wing activists who re-write it from the bench.
Amish PAC is also set to release endorsements for two key U.S. Senate races: Senator Rob Portman of Ohio and Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.
Because the Amish largely shun modern forms of technology and are completely unreachable by the internet and television, Amish PAC plans to begin running newspaper ads and billboards in hand-selected locations throughout Amish country. This ad campaign will launch around the same time as the GOP convention in Cleveland.
Amish PAC is the first and only political action committee dedicated to getting Amish & Mennonite voters to the polls. Amish PAC has been featured by NBC News, POLITICO, Talking Points Memo, TIME, CNN, New York Daily News, The Week Magazine and countless local media outlets throughout Amish Country.
