Trump Campaign Aggressively Courting...the Amish Vote?

Grifters gotta grift, and Amish folks don't watch television.

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.
