Donald Trump has a new group of allies.

Women Vote Trump, a new super PAC, was launched Thursday at the National Press Club by former tea party leader Amy Kremer, veteran Republican strategist Ann Stone, actress Stacey Dash and video bloggers Diamond and Silk, the wildly popular team who have supported Mr. Trump for months via YouTube and late-night TV appearances.

“There are millions of women who support Donald Trump and we’re not standing in the shadows anymore. We won’t be pushed around by bullies who tell us who we are “supposed” to like. And we’re not going to keep quiet just because the Washington, D.C. power elites want us to,” the group says in its initial mission statement.

A website features a new video which emphasizes both traditional home and hearth values and the tenacity of women. The three-minute presentation also showcases the diversity of Mr. Trump’s female fans, advising, “We know he’s not perfect. But he’s genuine, and that’s a breath of fresh air. … Proud American women have his back.”

The organizers hope to raise at least $30 million for the candidate, and are advising women voters that the female demographic will decide the 2016 presidential election — something that Hillary Clinton’s strategists have also claimed.

The new website offers Mr. Trump’s female fans a pledge of support to sign, with an emphasis on the presumptive GOP nominee’s “brains, drive and determination,” among other qualities.

“He takes action, and gets things done in the real world; He will keep my family safe from outside threats & illegal immigration; And I know he will shake up the status quo in Washington and put our country ahead of partisan politics,” the petition states.
