SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Oct. 11, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign on Tuesday released a video targeting voters who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The 1:40 video, titled “Mormons for Hillary,” shows recognizable scenes from Utah, many of them from aerial views. It shows children at play, women preparing meals and outdoors with their families, and men and women reading in their homes.
All are reading pro-family excerpts from Clinton’s 2006 book, “It Takes a Village.”
Among the people who appear in the video are LDS Church members and former Utah representatives Sheryl Allen and David Irvine, both Republican Party members who have announced they will be voting for Clinton rather that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The video release comes four days after the revelation of a 2005 recording made of Trump and former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush as Trump was preparing to shoot a soap opera cameo.
Trump can be heard making vulgar comments about women, saying, among other things, that his star status allowed him to do anything he wanted to women he found attractive without consent, including kissing a women or grabbing her p***y.”
Trump’s campaign has lost many former supporters over the sexually explicit comments. In Utah, those to speak out against him, his comments or both include Gov. Gary Herbert, Sen. Jason Chaffetz, Sen. Orrin Hatch, Sen. Mike Lee and former Gov. Jon Huntsman, Jr.
