Legendary Singer and Spokesman for 60 Plus Announces Endorsement
Alexandria, VA – Legendary entertainer Pat Boone, spokesman for a national non-partisan senior citizen group, announced today that Rick Crawford has won the 60 Plus Association’s Honorary Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award. Crawford is a Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in AR-01.
Boone, still performing at concerts, was a recording, movie and TV star second to none in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and had 38 top 10 hits during his career. Now a national spokesman for 60 Plus, Boone labeled Crawford a “fighter for the elderly.”
The Association’s Guardian Award is presented to Democrats and Republicans in Congress based on their “senior friendly” voting records. The Honorary Award is given to those running for office and is based on their views on seniors’ issues.
“Rick Crawford can always be counted on to protect Social Security and Medicare,” Boone said. “Rick Crawford will be a tax cutter, protecting the pocket books of senior citizens. 60 Plus calls on nearly 5.5 million seniors nationally for support, so I believe I can speak on behalf of seniors when I say that they can count on Rick Crawford. Clearly, seniors will have no finer friend in Congress than Rick Crawford.”
