Washington

Latest Update

Voters statewide need to learn how Patty Murray is leading the fight to lower prescription drug prices for Washington seniors and families, getting a bill signed into law that forces pharmaceutical companies to negotiate with Medicare and caps seniors’ insulin costs at $35 a month—while Tiffany Smiley opposed this legislation to help seniors, but wants to extend the Trump-era tax cuts that overwhelmingly benefited the very wealthiest.

Voters statewide should also learn that Patty Murray led the passage of a new law to jumpstart American manufacturing and innovation to bring production of microchips and other essential technology back home that will reduce dependence on foreign imports and supply chains, prevent delays and bring down prices for consumers, and create good-paying jobs here in Washington state. Senator Murray has been a champion of job training to make sure Washington workers can get the new, good-paying jobs this bill will create.

Voters in King County need to be motivated to vote by learning, through mail or digital, about the clear contrast between Tiffany Smiley’s extreme anti-choice record and Patty Murray’s record of fighting for reproductive rights.

  • Smiley supported the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, letting politicians completely ban abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest.
  • Smiley supported the Texas Law – one of the most extreme – that bans abortion before many women know they’re pregnant.
  • Smiley would help Mitch McConnell ban abortion for the whole country – even in Washington state.
  • Patty Murray has always defended a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions and is fighting to pass a federal law guaranteeing the right to an abortion.
