Candidates Are Missing Out

Posted By Jill Greenberg On October 5, 2007 @ 2:55 pm In Your Life | 2 Comments

Today’s Sioux City Journal gets it right [1] – Republican presidential candidates are missing an opportunity to talk to 50+ voters in Iowa by not yet agreeing to come to the AARP Forum on October 25th [2].
So far former Governor Huckabee and Senator John McCain have agreed to attend. We’re still waiting to hear from the rest of ‘em. AARP took out ads asking folks in Iowa to contact the campaigns directly. Print ads here [3]and radio ads here [4].
Just so you know… AARP has over 390,000 members in Iowa, including over 65,000 that have attended a caucus before.
