Diana Irey Vaughan initially wasn't sure she wanted to run for state treasurer. She canceled two different meetings to discuss the idea.
But when she easily collected the necessary 1,000 signatures, she took it as a sign from God to join the race.
Irey Vaughan spoke to the Lancaster County chapter of ACTION PA on Saturday morning about her efforts to unseat Democratic incumbent Robert M. McCord.
With the election three weeks away, Irey Vaughan, a Republican and five-term Washington County commissioner, stressed the importance of following God's lead and returning Christian values to government.
"[God] calls the ordinary, as I was and I am, to do his extraordinary work," she said. "We have to be a Christian army. We have to fight to return to a Christian nation."
ACTION (Americans for Christian Traditions in Our Nation) is a growing group with five chapters statewide. Candidates for local and national office also spoke to about 75 attendees of Saturday's breakfast meeting
