On Friday, January 24, 2020, AARP Texas Director Tina Tran released the following statement in response to American Workers For Progress’ citation of AARP’s backing of federal legislation to lower the price of prescription drugs in a political advertisement supporting U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar:

“AARP did not authorize or participate in the production of the advertisement citing Congressman Cuellar. AARP has a proud history of nonpartisan voter engagement and does not endorse or oppose candidates, nor does AARP make contributions to political campaigns or candidates. We encourage Texans to ask questions so they understand where the candidates stand on important issues and make their own decisions on Election Day.”
