“Women Vote Trump” Raising $30-M for Presidential Campaign
Thursday, 3 of Donald Trump’s female supporters announced a new super political action committee to help the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.
The group calls itself Women Vote Trump and aims to raise at least $30-M, according to its founders: Kathryn Serkes, Ann Stone and Amy Kremer.
“There are so many ad hoc groups of women who back Donald Trump, and what we want to do is harness their energy and give them a home,” Ms. Serkes said.
Ms. Stone said the group will advertise and have volunteers across the country in the hopes of driving up the female vote for Donald Trump, who faces the nation’s 1st female major-party presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, in November.
Democrats and some Republicans have portrayed Donald Trump as sexist, pointing his sometimes unflattering comments about some women.
Women Vote Trump is at least the 4th super PAC backing Mr. Trump. Super PACs are legally barred from coordinating with candidates.
The women’s group laid out its plans at a news conference Thursday in Washington DC, touting the support of actress Stacey Dash and popular YouTube personalities Diamond and Silk. All 3 celebrities frequently appear on television to promote Donald Trump.
