The group is putting up two billboards in Lancaster, Penn.

A Politico story from May said the PAC was started by "an alum of a pro-(Ben)Carson super PAC, an ex-Amish donor to that super PAC and an employee of (Newt) Gingrich Productions. The group is planning to mount an old-fashioned, billboards-and-newspaper-ads effort this summer, designed to encourage Amish people in Pennsylvania and Ohio to turn out for Trump in November."
