My mother suffers from dementia, and I really know first-hand through that experience the importance of Medicare, Social Security, and the other earned promises we make our seniors.

Many seniors are left without resources, which is a truly tragic situation. It is devastating if they can’t plan for their futures. In Congress, I will make it a priority to protect that promise.

This is the second ad spot for Ms. Patrick. According to The Virginian-Pilot: Democratic congressional candidate Suzanne Patrick, 57, a former Pentagon official and retired naval officer, is running against U.S. Rep. Scott Rigell, a Republican, in  Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. The 2nd District is made up of Virginia Beach, Accomack and Northampton counties, and parts of Norfolk, Hampton and Newport News.

She “served 21 years in the Navy Reserves, retiring as a commander last year. She also held several civilian Defense Department posts, including as deputy undersecretary of defense for industrial policy from 2001-05 under President George W. Bush.”
