Hillary Clinton, sensing apprehension from Utah Republicans for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, pitched Mormon voters in a Wednesday op-ed published by the Deseret News, a paper owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Clinton, quoting Mormon leaders through the piece, argues in the article that Trump “lacks the morals to be our commander-in-chief,” and in a nod to Mormons’ history of religious persecution, knocks Trump’s proposed Muslim ban.
