Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Casey’s campaign is launching a new initiative aimed at attracting older voters who will reliably show up at the polls and who may prove key in the up-and-down race in the 2024 elections.

The Seniors for Casey Coalition, first shared with Capital-Star, brings together more than 100 seniors from across the Commonwealth, including former Governor Ed Rendell, former Philadelphia Mayor John Street and former SEIU Vice President Rosemary Trump internationally.

His campaign told the Capital-Star that advocating for seniors in Pennsylvania is a top priority for Casey and touted his record of advancing legislation that benefits seniors.

“This coalition will help ensure that his priorities for seniors are shared across the state from now until Election Day through events, outreach, organizing and conversations in their communities,” Maddy McDaniel, a spokeswoman for Senate President Bob Casey, told the Capital-Star. “Senator Casey has championed seniors’ issues throughout his time in the Senate, and this coalition is just another way he’s bringing seniors’ attention to his work.”

Casey, who is seeking a fourth term in the U.S. Senate, serves as Senate president Special Committee on Aging. His campaign highlights Casey’s efforts to lower costs and protect seniors fraud and financial exploitation, holding company long-term care facilities responsible for and protecting Social Security and Medicare.
