JOSIAH FOR PRESIDENT
Bolton writes a timely, unique and humorous story about presidential politics with great characters. You’ll laugh, cry and shake your head in disbelief, even as the story’s uniqueness wanes. But Bolton turns around and ends the story in an unusual, surprising way.
After a failed presidential bid, Wisconsin congressman Mark Stedman heads home to plan his future. While driving through Pennsylvania, he runs his car into a ditch and is rescued by Amish farmer Josiah Stoltzfus. The two form a friendship while the car is being repaired. Mark is so impressed by Josiah’s simple ways and dedication that he decides to head a campaign to elect Josiah as president. Can a write-in Amish candidate win the election?
