The #NeverTrump hashtag has been reborn in a new Political Action Committee, Republicans For Hillary, that aims to convert Trump-disaffected GOP constituents in Clinton voters.

Craig Snyder, creator of Republicans For Hillary PAC and former Republican staffer, has a background working in politics, most notably running for Pennsylvania’s First Congressional District in 1992, as well as chief of staff for former U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter from 1992-1997. Snyder also started IKON, a public affairs firm, with Trump supporter Roger Stone. Snyder filed paperwork Friday and created a website for Republicans For Hillary.

In a statement Tuesday, Snyder said that the world is full of potentially dangerous situations that could lead to a third world war. He asked, “Who should be at the desk of the commander in chief? It shouldn’t be Donald Trump.” According to the PAC’s website, the Republican nominee is “unfit by character, temperament, experience, and professed ideas to become the next president.

One of the PAC’s recent online ads contrasted Trump with Ronald Reagan, who actually understood how to lead in a dangerous world.

The PAC is specifically targeting married women Republicans who might be concerned about Trump statements. Currently, Snyder says that the only donations that the PAC has received are “in-kind” donations of goods and services. Snyder wouldn’t reveal any additional information about supporters. In his statement, Snyder defended himself critical Republicans by saying, “when you get invited to a banquet, your choice is chicken or fish. You can’t write in steak.”

Last week, former Secretary and Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton created her own PAC, Republicans Against Trump. Although the group didn’t have any ads at press time, the website of the group is only one page in length. Visitors can fill out a pledge stating, “Donald Trump is not qualified to be president. He does not represent my beliefs as a Republican and, more importantly, my values as an American. He does not speak for me and I will not vote for him.” Visitors are also given the opportunity to donate to Clinton’s campaign. At the bottom of the website, the words “Paid for by Hillary for America” are prominently displayed.
