Are candidates listening to voters 50+? Do they understand their concerns?

We’ve heard from thousands of people: Telling us about their day-to-day lives. Sharing about the stress they feel about the future. They are unable to save enough for retirement--or dipping into nest eggs just to pay for everyday expenses. Many Arizonians have had to pay thousands out of their own pockets to care for their loved ones while also juggling jobs, often without paid leave.

Voters 50+ have a lot on their plates--and are feeling invisible and ignored. Here in Arizona, we know many older Arizonians are worried about rising costs for basic needs like food, gas and medication.

"Grocery prices have seemingly doubled" Wendy, Arizona.

"I am trying to keep my head above water daily!", Adrienne, Arizona.

With just weeks left until the midterm election, it’s more urgent than ever for candidates to listen to this powerful constituency--to understand what it’s like to walk in their shoes--and focus on the issues that matter to them.

50+ voters here in Arizona will decide this election and they're looking for candidates who will listen. Politicians ignore them at their own risk.
