(Alexandria, Virginia) – Legendary entertainer and seniors advocate Pat Boone has recorded a message to voters on behalf of the Michigan 1st District Congressman Dan Benishek.
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 6,500 in the 1st District of Michigan.
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 Congressman Dan Benishek.
We need strong leaders in Washington like Dan Benishek, who understands that Obamacare hurts seniors by cutting Medicare.
Dan Benishek has been a champion for seniors, protecting Social Security and Medicare, and fighting to end the runaway spending that is bankrupting our country.
Friends this election is too important to sit out. So please join me, Pat Boone, in supporting a leader Michigan seniors can trust, Congressman Dan Benishek.
Thank you and God Bless.
