AARP, nations largest lobbying group, sends letter to members saying Geoff Davis television ad misleads voters.

    The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), has sent out a letter to its members in the Fourth Congressional District of Kentucky informing them that a television ad for the campaign of Republican Geoff Davis misleads and wrongly attacks Democratic Congressional Candidate Ken Lucas.

 

The letter says that the television ad:

 

-wrongly attacks candidate Ken Lucas for supporting the need for a bipartisan plan to continue the program’s guaranteed benefits for future generations-
 

The AARP has over 33 million members. The  AARP is the leading nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization for people age 50 and over in the United States.
There are an estimated 150,000 people in the 4th. Congressional District eligible for membership in the AARP.
 

The letter states:
 

-Every election cycle we see ads trying to scare voters about the future of Social Security. This season is no different, and its now happening right here in the 4th. Congressional District of Kentucky.-
 

-We wanted to alert you to recent actions taken by some political interests to mischaracterize AARP Voters Guides in an effort to mislead voters.-
