You might know Saba Ahmed as the woman who wore an American flag hijab on Fox News last November. You might not know, however, that she is a Republican — or that she spends much of her non-cable news time trying to convince other Muslims to support the GOP’s eventual nominee.

She’s the latest subject in our ongoing podcast and video series, The Trail Tapes, which tells the stories of people with unorthodox relationships to the presidential campaign.

Previous episodes have focused on a Donald Trump impersonator, a couple of precocious kids in New Hampshire, and a woman who voices attack ads.
