ICYMI: Trump-funded Super PAC Spending Big with False Ad in Washington State to Prop Up Tiffany Smiley

(Seattle, WA) – At the same time that Tiffany Smiley is trying to hide her extreme positions from Washington voters, she’s ramping up her MAGA activities — campaigning with conspiracy theorists and election deniers like Dinesh D’Souza, and getting help on the airwaves from a Trump-funded super PAC that OpenSecrets describes as “a single-candidate super PAC in support of Donald Trump.”

And this weekend, Smiley will be attending a MAGA retreat in Georgia with Trump-endorsed candidates and multiple senators who voted against certifying the 2020 election. The retreat will be hosted by NRSC Chair Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), who leads Senate Republicans’ campaign arm and released an agenda that would end Social Security and Medicare within five years and decimate programs that millions of American families depend on.

A recap on Tiffany Smiley’s MAGA-packed week: 

  • On Thursday, Smiley attended a Miami MAGA fundraiser with Trump-endorsed candidates including Blake Masters of Arizona, J.D. Vance of Ohio, Dr. Mehmet Oz of Pennsylvania, Adam Laxalt of Nevada, and others. 
  • Earlier this week, Smiley’s campaign got a $500,000 boost from a major Trump-funded super PAC running ads in Washington state with false claims about the IRS provisions of the popular Inflation Reduction Act. 
  • Smiley’s campaign refused to disavow notorious election-denying conspiracy theorist Dinesh D’Souza after Smiley headlined a campaign event with him in Yakima.

“Early on in her campaign, Smiley promised her donors she’d be a “rock-solid conservative vote” — a reliable rubber stamp for Mitch McConnell’s radical agenda,” said Washington State Democratic Party spokesperson Caitlin Harrington. “This week, by buddying up with her MAGA friends and Trump donors, she’s showing us exactly who she’ll take orders from if she’s elected to the United States Senate: MAGA extremists, not Washington voters.”
