Stefanik gets involved in Washington Senate race against Patty Murray
Stefanik is backing Tiffany Smiley and will put the resources of her political action committee, Elevate PAC, into flipping the traditionally blue state during the 2022 midterm elections.
"I am proud to endorse Tiffany Smiley for UnitedStates Senate,"Stefanik said in statement first obtained by FoxNews. "While I'm laser-focused on taking back the House, this Senate race battleground
Smiley is a nurse, mother and advocate for wounded veterans — including her husband.
"Tiffany took on the Pentagon for her husband, she demanded VA reform for our returning heroes, and Tiffany Smiley is the fighter the people of Washington will be able to count Stefanik said.
While political pundits have largely put the Washington Senate seat safely in the blue column, Stefanik's team sees an opening for a GOP pickup.
Stefanik views this "as an overlooked race" pointing to Smiley's "solid" fundraising and President Biden's low approval ratings that have dogged Democrats in blue states, according to her campaign.
Smiley said she's grateful for Stefanik backing in her effort to defeat Murray.Sadly PattyMurray has lost sight of the need to deliver for the people of Washington and has simply become a rubberstamp
for President Biden's failed agenda," Smiley said in a statement. "I will never forget where I came from."Murray became the first female senator from Washington state after her 1992 election,
and has been re-elected four times since. She has been a part of Democratic leadership since 2007.Murray was the first female chair of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee
and the first female chair of the Senate Budget Committee. She currently leads the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.
