(Alexandria, Virginia) – Legendary entertainer and seniors advocate Pat Boone has recorded a message to voters on behalf of the Carlos Curbelo for Congress campaign. Curbelo is running in Florida’s 26th Congressional District.
Boone made the recording today in his capacity as spokesman for the national non-partisan senior citizen group, the 60 Plus Association, which has more than 7.2 million senior supporters nationally, including more than 16,000 in the 26th District of Florida.
The recording can be heard here. The transcript — subject to an occasional Boone ad-lib — is below:
Hello Friend–This is Pat Boone. Yes, the Love Letters in the Sand guy.
I’m still singing at concerts, but today I’m calling on behalf of the 60 Plus Association to sing the praises of Carlos Curbelo for Congress.
We need strong leaders in Washington like Carlos Curbelo, who understands that Obamacare hurts seniors by cutting Medicare.
Carlos Curbelo will be a champion for seniors, fighting to protect and strengthen Social Security and Medicare, and stop the runaway deficit spending that threatens these vital programs.
Friends, this election is too important to sit out. So please join me, Pat Boone, in supporting a leader who stands strong for seniors and bringing trust back to Washington, Carlos Curbelo for Congress.
Thank you and God Bless.
