SEPTEMBER 23, 2022


Campaign Kickoff

The Tri Cities Chamber of Commerce recently held a lunch for Newhouse; I got no time. They scheduled a candidate forum, but canceled it. They’re holding an “elected” leader’s reception and I am shut out again. 

Tri Dec, as I understand, has actively helped organize rallies for Newhouse and sent emails that support him. 

PNNL – which I have the highest level of respect for, has complaints shared with my campaign of officials using their staff contact lists to distribute pro Newhouse messages that seem too political to be acceptable communications. 

We expect the Tri Cities Chamber, Tri Dec and PNNL to always operate in the best interest of the community. It then becomes important to ask, why are they going to such lengths to promote a single candidate? 

What makes it more difficult to understand is that Newhouse’s record shows that he has done little for the Tri Cities. He votes against unions, he has abused workers’ trust at Hanford on issues of Covid, he has written legislation to slow our move to carbon free energy and the money that comes in to fund Hanford Cleanup and PNNL comes from the work of our Senators. 

This is an injustice to the people of the Tri Cities. This is how the right to vote for the best candidate is systematically taken away from us. Big money, cronyism and abuse of authority. Do not stand for it! 

As I mentioned in the previous newsletter, I had the opportunity to chat with the people in Omak via the KOMW Okanogan Talk Radio!
If you missed it live, you can listen to it on Youtube to know more about my vision for the District and goal I will accomplish for different areas once I get elected.
It was another busy week! It was a great honor to be able to present a scholarship check on behalf of the Democrats of Douglas and Chelan counties to Fiestas Mexicanas! Two deserving, recipients will share the prize.
In other news, our campaign for the midterm election officially kicked off on the 16th in Methow Valley and on the 20th in Tri-Cities. I am so grateful for anyone who came and continues to support our journey to victory. Grassroots efforts are how we make changes and restore true Democracy that has been backsliding due to damages caused by Republican congressional members, including Dan Newhouse himself. How can we improve the community as a whole if our incumbent district representative has voted against expanding veteran benefits, against multiple health care Acts, and against infrastructure development and working labor benefits? District 4th deserves to have the right leader with full transparency and represent our voices above party in Congress to bring enough of our tax dollars to defend this country and invest in ourselves. We need someone with the right set of priorities. I believe I have the right mindset and skills to deliver.
I am ready to make a change. I hope I have your vote.

The Right Priorities

I see a future for Central Washington when others do not. I see our water projects finished, immigration reform enacted, wages rising, community centers thriving and our energy needs being met. Some call this pie in the sky, but I call it good math.

You see, there is money to do all these things, it is our money! What we have been told is that any money spent on us or our district is wasteful and is going to raise the deficit and destroy our economy. What they don’t tell you is that our government officials can redirect money to different priorities without raising taxes or the deficit, they just don’t think we are a priority.

What do they support instead of us? They supported increasing our deficit by eight trillion dollars during the last administration with nothing coming to us. They back policies that lost us precious foreign markets and our economy billions of dollars. They backed reducing the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% thereby slashing our federal tax revenue by over a trillion dollars and passing the burden to us!

There is enough of our tax dollars to defend this country and invest in ourselves. We need someone with the right set of priorities.

It was another busy week! I went from Omak for the Okanogan County Fair across to Nespelem for an interview. Stopped for a radio show then headed south to Bingen for the annual Huckleberry Festival and parade. Then I went to Pasco on Saturday for the Fiery Food Festival. The last stop was in Tieton Farm and Creamery where I had such a great time discussing the issue of fresh-water shortage and sharing my vision on how to support our community the most on farming and infrastructure.In between and around all of that I was talking to people all up and down this district along with city councils and just examining everything myself. This is a beautiful area with so much to give. We should not trust it to those that don’t respect it. Those that refuse to protect us from drought, refuse land management to stop the wildfires, and deny our changing climate while our farmers suffer crop loss. I am ready to make a change. I hope I have your vote.

13. September 2022 · Comments Off on Patty Murray Update 9-13-2022 · Categories: Committee News, Elections

Hi all,

We are officially less than 8 weeks away from Election Day! I am reaching out today to share the latest media updates from the campaign and asking you to help us promote them on your social channels. 

As you likely know, Sen. Lindsey Graham announced this week that he is introducing a nationwide abortion ban. Senator Murray is leading the fight against this effort in DC. Here at home, we are working to make sure voters understand just what is at stake in November. 

To that end, we released a new video today on our social media channels highlighting the danger MAGA Republicans like Tiffany Smiley pose to abortion rights around the country. The video can be found on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tiktok. Sharing this video along with the importance of this election and why we need to protect a woman’s right to choose is the best way to help spread the word about our campaign. You can either reshare our posts, or if you’d prefer, post the video to your own account. The video is available for download here. You can also find suggested language for your posts in this document. 

The campaign also released a new ad this week talking about the dangerous lies Tiffany Smiley and the GOP continue to spread about our democracy. You can see and share that ad here. 

As always, let me know if there are any questions or if you need anything further from the campaign.

Best,
Kate--

SEPTEMBER 2022


Election is in full swing, and Doug is crisscrossing the district to meet voters and talk about the issues facing Central Washington. 


Doug joins supporters for a meal in Goldendale – Klickitat County. District 4 Is a big district and no one will be left behind. Doug always wants to share his vision for a better community as well as make sure that everyone in every part of the District can voice their concern.

Early this week, Doug was on the radio with KOMW radio, chatting with the people of Omak – Okanogan County. He had a chance to inform everyone about some critical projects he plans to implement when elected, including drought resistance, better infrastructure, and his stand on universal healthcare.

Doug visited Richard – a retired Veteran that attended one of Newhouse’s Veterans events. There was one person to help 500 Veterans and 18 months later, Richard is still waiting on a response. Newhouse voted no on the first PACT Act vote.We have to do better at supporting our veterans!

While enjoying a good time at the Okanogan County Fair on Thursday, we asked children to vote on what was their biggest concern, and surprisingly, it was Child Care and Gun Safety – two critical focal points that Doug want to address in Congress.

We had so much fun at the Benton-Franklin Fair & Rodeo Grand Parade!


Our upcoming campaign events in Kennewick, Methow Valley, and Yakima are the perfect opportunity to meet Doug and hear his vision for our district directly from him.

Check out our calendar of events below and sign up to join us!

Hi all,

Hope folks had a great holiday weekend! 

You may have seen that both Senator Murray and Tiffany Smiley were on CNN’s State of the Union this past Sunday, and the choice for Washington state voters couldn’t be more clear. Senator Murray talked about her focus on Washington state voters in this race, the importance of protecting the right to abortion, and the current threats to democracy

Meanwhile, Tiffany Smiley wouldn’t admit that President Biden was elected fairly, even after she was asked directly three times. Headlines about Tiffany Smiley’s attempts to hide her extreme views from Washington voters continue to pile up: 

  • Axios:“GOP Senate candidate scrubs website of 2020 election doubts”
  • HuffPo: “GOP Senate Candidate Scrubs Election ‘Integrity’ Section From Website”
  • Daily Beast: “‘Moderate’ GOP Senate Candidate Tiffany Smiley Won’t Say Biden Was ‘Legitimately’ Elected”

This week, Senator Murray is back in the other Washington for votes and session work after wrapping up a busy month of travel all across Washington state. On the campaign side, we’re hosting a press conference this Thursday with Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Alexis McGill Johnson to highlight Smiley’s extreme anti-abortion views that are out of step with Washingtonians (recent tweet from Alexis on this here). And of course—we’re focused on building our ground game that will help us win in November. On that front, please continue to drive folks to sign up for shifts through the WA Dems

In case it’s helpful, sharing some suggested draft Facebook and Instagram posts and tweets here that you’re free to use and repurpose when talking about Senator Murray’s race this week. We’re also helping organize Op-Eds and Letters to the Editor regarding the race—please reach out if you or someone on your team is interested.

As always, let me know if there are any questions or if you need anything further from the campaign.

Next Steps

It is wonderful to hear so many people stepping up and offering to support my campaign. We need everyone! We will win because we have the strongest ground game. There is nothing that motivates a voter more than direct voter contact. We have knocked on more doors, called, texted, sent more post cards, written more letters to the editor and attended more events than any of the other candidates. We will continue to do this through November 8th and through all my terms in Congress. The job of a Representative is to listen to the people, take their message to congress, pass legislation and bring our tax dollars home to invest in our future. Sadly this simple truth has been lost on our politicians.

Flip the narrative. As I travel up and down this district I hear, from mostly republicans, that investing in our country and in the people of this nation is destroying us. How have we got to the point where people think anytime good is done for them that it is a trick or scam? Like a dog beaten by its master we shrink away from even a kind hand. It is long overdue to put people back in control, not politicians. They serve at our pleasure not the other way around.

We will be at the Benton/ Franklin County Fair tomorrow Saturday August 20th. If you want to walk with us or the Benton County Democrats then you need to be there at 9am. We won’t know where in line we will be until we check in tomorrow morning, but I will Facebook live our location.

We are everywhere! This last week alone we were at 1 city council, 2 fairs and a day in Goldendale took us to 5 different stops. Check out the pictures.

We need volunteers! Phone banking, Texting, Canvassing, Letter writing and so much more. Join us now for Blue in ’22.
