Sihk and You Shall Find
In front of us on the New Jersey turnpike around exit 11 was a late-model van. On the back were two, large "Craig Williams for Congress" magnets.
What was interesting is when we passed the van I looked over and saw the male driver and his male passenger where Sikhs. They had the turbans, black beards, the robes, the whole deal.
Looks like Williams' supporters are a pretty diverse crowd.
I just called Williams' campaign guy Pete Peterson and told him the story. I asked him if they had anything to do with the campaign but he said no.
He theorized that they could be from Upper Darby, which has a pretty large Sikh population and some of them have a few turnpike concessions. He suggested the guys I saw may have been checking on their businesses Saturday morning.
Hard working guys those Sikhs. Small business guys. No wonder they're supporting the Republican candidate in their district.
