ORLANDO, FLA. – The 60 Plus Association, nationally recognized as the conservative alternative to the liberal AARP, today launched new television and web ads in Florida’s 8th and 24th Congressional Districts.  The organization will spend nearly $1 million in the Orlando area on issue ads that spotlight Reps. Alan Grayson and Suzanne Kosmas’s records.

“It is time for Washington to listen to their constituents,” said Jim Martin, Chairman of 60 Plus.  “Legislators, like Reps. Grayson and Kosmas, have been so consumed by the talking points spewing from Speaker Pelosi that they seem to have forgotten to tune into the concerns of those who put them in office.  Florida seniors said ‘no’ to ObamaCare and the so-called stimulus package, but Reps. Grayson and Kosmas said ‘aye’ nonetheless.  They might not have listened before, but when seniors head to the ballot box this November, you can be sure they will hear the message.”

Featuring the voices of concerned residents of Florida’s 8th and 24th Congressional Districts, the 30-second TV ad will air across the two districts beginning on September 9.
