Boone, who serves as a spokesman for the conservative senior citizen group the 60 Plus Association, said Shelby is the kind of leader the Yellowhammer State needs in the Senate.
“I’m still singing at concerts,” Boone remarked, “but today I’m singing the praises of Senator Richard Shelby.”
“We need strong leaders like Senator Shelby serving Alabama in the U.S. Senate. Senator Selby has protected seniors by fighting for lower taxes, to strengthen and protect Social Security and Medicare, and for comprehensive healthcare reform with affordable access to quality care. Senator Shelby will always protect Alabama and Alabama’s seniors.”
The group’s Vice President Matthew Kandrach, harmonized with Boone in a statement Friday night.
“Alabama seniors currently have two strong conservative U.S. Senators fighting for them in Washington D.C. Richard Shelby and Jeff Sessions,” said Kandrach. “Together they have proven to be a solid and effective team. Senator Shelby has been a vocal proponent of a balanced budget and reigning in the increasingly high amount of spending and regulations that drive up taxes and costs for seniors.
“Senator Shelby has never failed to stand firm with Alabama’s seniors, and on behalf of 60 Plus’s more than 78,000 senior supporters in the Yellowhammer state, we’re proud to call him our friend.”
