PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s a new effort to get Amish voters to the polls this fall. Ben Walters is on the fundraising counsel for the 2-month old AMISH PAC. The Virginia based political action committee is raising money for newspaper and billboards ads in Ohio and Pennsylvania prime locations for Amish voters.
They could make or break this election by tipping the scales for Republicans in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
The Amish didn't watch Donald Trump during the debates, and they aren't reading his tweets. They also don't usually cast ballots, as it's strongly discouraged among their community, but that's not stopping a new PAC from getting out the vote.

Ben King's political awareness blossomed a dozen years ago as an Amish youth riding in a pickup truck.
Sitting among coworkers on the way home from his first construction job, King listened intently as conservative radio hosts Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity played in the background. The discussions left an indelible impression on the 16-year-old.
