Retiree Group Endorses Sen. Tammy Baldwin for U.S. Senate
Cites Commitment to Protecting Earned Social Security and Medicare Benefits
Milwaukee, WI – Members of the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans proudly announced their endorsement of Senator Tammy Baldwin for re-election to the U.S. Senate from Wisconsin today.
“Senator Baldwin has earned a perfect 100% lifetime pro-retiree score in our Congressional Voting Record, proving her dedication to seniors,” said Marlene Ott, President of the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans. “She remains committed to strengthening and expanding Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Protecting earned benefits and pensions for retirees who have put in a lifetime of hard work is essential. We know Senator Baldwin will continue standing up for retiree interests, and we are proud to support her in the midterm election.”
“As an experienced elected official, Senator Baldwin understands the importance of improving the quality of life for older Americans,” said President Ott. “She also knows that we must ensure all retirees have access to affordable health care, and has remained committed to protecting seniors with pre-existing conditions from discriminatory insurers. We trust her to fight against any attempts to strip health insurance away from older Americans, and to tackle the rising cost of prescription drugs.”
The Wisconsin Alliance also delivered endorsements today to Rep. Gwen Moore in her re-election bid to represent Wisconsin’s 4th Congressional District; Randy Bryce, candidate for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District; and Tom Palzewicz, candidate for Wisconsin’s 5th Congressional District.
The Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans has more than 100,000 members throughout the state, and is working to ensure they turn out to vote in strong numbers.
