PHOENIX — The wife of Arizona Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick has reportedly launched a campaign aimed at keeping Donald Trump out of the White House.
The Washington Post reports Randy Kendrick and her husband have made a “significant” donation to a super PAC devoted to stopping Trump’s run through ads and she is working with a nonprofit business chamber to rally support against the New York billionaire.
“I am putting my time and effort into it, which is much harder than to write a check,” she said. “I am calling everybody who has ever said anything to me about being horrified with Trump. I’m saying, ‘There is actually a vehicle so people know more about this man.’ I think there are a lot of facts out there in the public domain, but they are not well known.”
Randy said she would have started the campaign against Trump earlier, but like most people, she felt he would fall by the wayside when he went up against other politicians.
She said her epiphany that Trump would be a bad choice for America was when he failed to denounce the Ku Klux Klan’s endorsement of his campaign.
“Dictators arose because good people did not stand up and say, ‘It’s wrong to scapegoat minorities,’” she told the paper. “This is threatening to the fabric of our country.”
Randy said she understands the fight against Trump may not be popular, but “some fights are worth having.”
“There is no way we keep our soul and not stand up and say, ‘This is wrong,'” she told the Post.
