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 Congresswoman Renee Ellmers.
We need strong leaders in Washington like Renee Ellmers, who understands that Obamacare hurts seniors by cutting Medicare.
Renee Ellmers 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 North Carolina seniors trust, Congresswoman Renee Ellmers.
Thank you and God Bless.
