AARP Did Not Authorize or Participate in Production of Political Ads Targeting Republican Candidates in Maine: Campaigns Need to Focus on Issues Impacting Mainers
AARP Maine State Director Lori Parham released the following statement today in response to the FF PAC’s citation of AARP in a political ad targeting Sen. Susan Collins and House Majority PAC’s political ad targeting Dale Crafts, a candidate for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. Said Parham:
“AARP did not authorize or participate in the production of these advertisements targeting Senator Collins and Dale Crafts. AARP has a proud 34-year history of non-partisan voter engagement and does not endorse or oppose candidates, nor does AARP make contributions to political campaigns or candidates.
“AARP urges candidates to focus on issues that will provide helpful information to voters. Maine voters 50+ need to hear where the candidates stand on important matters such as protecting Social Security and Medicare, and driving down the cost of prescription drugs. With less than two weeks until Election Day, the candidates should stop attacking each other and attend to the issues that matter to voters.”
