Senators are elected to six-year terms and represent the entire state. The Senate acts on bills, resolutions, amendments, etc.

Patty Murray was Washington’s first female US Senator. She served one term as a Washington State Senator before running a successful campaign in the US Senate in 1992, where she has served since.

Murray said she wants to continue working for families in Washington. In her candidacy statement, Murray said she would always side with those who want to “reverse workers’ rights” or ban abortion. She also said she wanted to reduce families’ health and childcare costs.

“We have work to do. We need to protect reproductive rights. We need to protect this democracy. We need to take this night off and go to work and keep working for all of you,” that’s the word. My pledge to you all,” Murray said in his election night speech.

Smiley, born in Pasco, is the co-founder and president of Hope Unseen, an organization that advocates for veterans. In Smiley’s candidacy statement, she said she was running to improve public safety and support law enforcement, among other priorities. This is Smiley’s first political campaign.

“As you all know in Washington state, it takes a few days to know the end of our election here. So, you know, we trust that when every legitimate vote counts. , we can turn the tide here in Washington state,” Smiley said in an election night speech.

During a recent debate, differences in Murray and Smiley’s backgrounds were made apparent when the two answered questions about inflation, abortion and crime.

Smiley said that while she opposes the federal abortion ban, she is against abortion and encourages people to ask Murray if she believes in “any legal limit to abortion. ” Smiley said Murray’s support of the Inflation Reduction Act did nothing to combat inflation. Smiley also said she believes cities are being “ravaged” by crime and police are not getting the support they need.

During the debate, Murray said she supported abortion and that each woman should make her own choices about her health and family. Murray said she has been working to reduce costs for families amid rising inflation, including the cost of prescription drugs. Murray also shows how funds from Rescue Plan America are being used to help communities recruit and retain police officers.
