“Tonight’s debate showed seniors across the country that we have a very clear choice between the current administration, which has already cut Medicare by $716 billion to pay for Obamacare, and Mitt Romney and Paul who will protect Medicare for retirees like me and strengthen it for my grandchildren’s generation and generations thereafter," Betty Douglas said in the statement.

It's not the first time Douglas has played a role in the campaign. She's previously appeared on the trail next to her son and most recently stopped by the Romney-Ryan headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to rally local volunteers.
