Washington State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski released the following statement on this morning’s launch of Sen. Patty Murray’s re-election campaign

Seattle — “Patty Murray has a strong record of putting Washington workers and families first and Washington Democrats know it, which is why they’ve consistently re-elected her to fight for Washington in the U.S. Senate. In the last year alone, she’s brought home real results: funding COVID-19 relief to deliver vaccines and help our schools reopen safely in the fall, providing support for hard-hit small businesses and restaurants, and passing legislation to make healthcare more affordable so people can get the coverage they need. There are a lot of big talkers in the other Washington, but Patty Murray can be counted on to fight for progressive solutions and get things done for our state.”

“The people of Washington will have a choice next year between our champion Patty Murray and a Trump-supporting conservative who could put Mitch McConnell back in charge of the Senate, and I know that voters are excited to re-elect Patty Murray.”
