“I’m still singing at concerts, but today I’m singing the praises of David Rouzer.”

That’s the once-mellifluous voice of crooner Pat Boone, now 79 years old, cropping up in an announcement for Rouzer’s congressional campaign this weekend.

The 60 Plus Association endorsed the former state senator in his second bid for congress. The organization says it singled him out for his pro-senior voting record, and his support of issues important to the group.

He is hoping to replace longtime Democratic incumbent Rep. Mike McIntyre, who is not seeking re-election. Rouzer lost in a razor-thin election in 2012. First he has to survive the Republican primary against two opponents.
