JACKSON, TENN. – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched its second round of ads in Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District.  The organization will spend another $485,000 in the district on television and web ads that target Roy Herron’s record.

“Health reform, like the Roy Herron-supported TennCare, degraded health care for thousands of Tennesseans,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of the 60 Plus Association.  “Many seniors will lose the coverage they enjoy and will be forced into a one-size-fits-all option that they don’t want.  Legislators in Washington didn’t listen to Tennessee physicians; they didn’t listen to Tennessee seniors.  Our seniors simply can’t afford to send someone else to Washington who won’t listen when Tennessee says, ‘No!'”

The 60 Plus ad began airing on August 6.  The initial buy was priced at nearly $250,000.  The second 60 Plus ad in the district will begin airing on September 9.
