Did you know that there is an Amish PAC that targets Amish and Mennonite voters? Well there is and the group is trying to get voters in Pennsylvania's Amish country to support Republican nominee Donald Trump.

"Pennsylvania has a good shot of going Republican in November and these billboards will certainly help by getting people registered and to the polls," said Amish PAC's Lancaster-based Outreach Director Ben King.

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."
