Press Release

Alexandria, Virginia – Legendary entertainer Pat Boone, spokesman for the national non-partisan senior citizen group the 60 Plus Association today announced that Congressman Jeff Duncan of South Carolina’s third Congressional district has earned the group’s Guardian of Seniors’ Rights award. 

Chairman Jim Martin, who founded 60 Plus in 1992, commented, Jeff Duncan can be counted on to protect Social Security and Medicare, fight to repeal Obamacare and end the 'death tax.'  As a trusted public servant, Jeff Duncan will continue to protect the pocket books of senior citizens and end the wasteful spending of our tax dollars, which has our government now borrowing over 40 cents of every dollar to pay its bills. Seniors have to live within their means and so should our government.”

In a statement released by 60 Plus, Boone remarked, “I’m still singing at concerts, but today I’m singing the praises of Jeff Duncan. Seniors can depend on Jeff Duncan.”  Boone, 80, and his wife of 60 years, Shirley, reside in Beverly Hills, California.

Boone is familiar to audiences as a star of music, film and television. Boone has had 38 top-ten hits since his recording career began in the 1950s, and, according to Billboard magazine, still holds the record for the most consecutive weeks (220) on the charts by any performer.

Martin added, Jeff Duncan is more than just a committed public servant with a distinguished track record of fighting on behalf of seniors in Washington; Jeff Duncan is a trusted voice for smaller, more effective and less expensive government. Jeff Duncan is a tireless worker who makes decisions every day based on what's best for our children and grandchildren. Seniors have no better friend in the U.S. House of Representatives than Congressman Jeff Duncan.”
