KEY MESSAGES ON PATTY MURRAY
- Patty has been fighting for Washington state her entire career. She first got into politics when a male legislator told her she couldn’t make a difference because she was “just a mom in tennis shoes.” She is a tireless fighter for WA state’s working families every day in the other Washington.
- Patty has been called the single most effective Democratic combatant against GOP attempts to restrict abortion. Patty will always defend a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.
- Patty is pro-worker and fights every day for an economy that works for everyone. She passed the American Rescue Plan to recover all the jobs lost during the pandemic, and helped negotiate the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and CHIPS and Science Act to upgrade our infrastructure, make universal high-speed internet a reality, and bring back American manufacturing.
- Patty helped lead the fight to lower the cost of prescription drugs and extend the ACA tax credits to lower health care premiums. Even under the Trump administration she wrote and got signed into law the No Surprises Act to ban surprise medical bills.
KEY MESSAGES ON TIFFANY SMILEY
- Tiffany Smiley is Mitch McConnell’s hand picked candidate who is running to flip the Senate and help enact the extreme GOP agenda that is wrong for our state. A vote for Tiffany Smiley is a vote for Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump.
- Abortion is on the ballot this November. Tiffany Smiley calls herself “100% pro-life,” celebrated the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, praised the cruel Texas abortion ban, and supported a federal abortion ban before she launched her campaign.
- Tiffany Smiley has said she supports Rick Scott’s disastrous agenda which would end Medicare and Social Security as we know it, letting Mitch McConnell and Republicans decide the future of these programs. Rick Scott’s agenda would also sunset the Affordable Care Act after five years.

Before @MurrayCampaign takes the stage tonight, I’m signing up to phone bank with the @WashDems — talking to voters is so important this election. Join me! https://www.wa-democrats.org/organizingevents/
SAMPLE TWEETS – ABORTION
Tiffany Smiley wants POLITICIANS to be able to make women’s reproductive health care decisions — she is so out of touch with our state’s values. #WASen
Tiffany Smiley supported a national abortion ban before she launched her campaign — no matter what she says, we can’t trust her to protect a woman’s right to choose here in Washington. #WASen
Tiffany Smiley is anti-abortion. Tiffany Smiley wants to force women to give birth. Tiffany Smiley wants politicians to make other women’s health care decisions for them. Tiffany Smiley is wrong for Washington—vote for @MurrayCampaign. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – CLIMATE CHANGE
RT to remind everyone that Tiffany Smiley said she would have voted against the biggest climate action bill in American history. #WASen
Democrats are building a clean energy economy, creating jobs and lowering costs — ALL while saving the planet. Vote for the party that believes in facts and science, not the party of climate deniers! Vote for @MurrayCampaign. #WASen
Tiffany Smiley is a climate denier but wants to represent the Evergreen state in the Senate?! She should not be deciding policy for millions of us if she can’t even accept basic science.. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – CRIME/PUBLIC SAFETY/GUNS/DRUGS
.@MurrayCampaign helped pass billions of dollars to fund police departments in a bill that not a single Senate Republican voted for — and Tiffany Smiley wouldn’t have either. #WASen
While Tiffany Smiley politicizes the drug overdose epidemic, @MurrayCampaign is focused on getting things done and providing resources to all in WA who struggle with addiction — and she’s working with Republicans to get it done. #WASen
We need to do more on gun safety & Tiffany Smiley is not up for the job! @MurrayCampaign has a proven track record of working across the aisle to strengthen gun laws—and she knows there’s more work to be done, like universal background checks & an assault weapons ban. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – DEMOCRACY/ELECTIONS/JANUARY 6TH
Tiffany Smiley is an election denier through and through. Up until a few weeks ago she was refusing to say whether Biden was our legitimate President. We need a Senator like @MurrayCampaign who respects our democracy and understands FACTS. #WASen
What “serious questions” does Tiffany Smiley have about the 2020 election? She’s pandering to the extreme MAGA Republicans who support her campaign and is lifting up Trump’s dangerous Big Lie that led to the insurrection. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – ECONOMY/INFLATION
Make no mistake, Tiffany Smiley and the MAGA Republican party have no plan to deal with inflation and lower costs for working families. #WASen
The Inflation Reduction Act is lowering the cost of energy, health care, and prescription drugs. Senate Republicans’ only plan is to undo all that and raise costs on working people. #WASen
Better access to child care strengthens our economy — we need a national plan now and we need @MurrayCampaign in the Senate to get it done. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – EDUCATION
Tiffany Smiley would be the rubber stamp Mitch McConnell needs to cut teacher jobs, end student disability programs, and eliminate Pell Grants — all key components of their MAGA agenda. She won’t put our kids first in the US Senate. #WASen
Tiffany Smiley would have voted against the American Rescue Plan—the bill that got students back to in-person learning safely. She’s also backed by the anti-public school DeVos family and would gut our public education system. #WASen
Tiffany Smiley says she wants to “ban” young people in Washington state from receiving debt forgiveness but supports extending tax giveaways to billionaires and big corporations? Huh? #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – FOREIGN POLICY
Tiffany Smiley is backed by Trump’s former Secretary of State — a man who embraced dictators and sold America out. Anyone who shares his foreign policy views has no business representing us in the Senate. #WASen
The stories coming out of #Ukraine are horrifying. We must support Ukraine against Putin and his unjust war. In times like this we need steady leadership from people who understand these issues. We need @MurrayCampaign. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – HEALTH CARE/PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
Democrats capped the cost of insulin at $35/month for people on Medicare. Senate Republicans & Tiffany Smiley want to reverse that. #WASen
Democrats took on Big Pharma and won, giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower drug prices. Senate Republicans & Tiffany Smiley want to reverse that. #WASen
Democrats just lowered the cost of health care for hundreds of thousands of working families in WA. Not a single Republican voted for it — and Tiffany Smiley would’ve been right there with them. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – IMMIGRATION
We need to protect DREAMers, we need a pathway to citizenship, and we need to sort out our broken immigration system. What we DON’T need is another MAGA GOP rubber stamp like Tiffany Smiley. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – MITCH MCCONNELL/MAGA REPUBLICANS
Don’t forget! After the primary, Smiley scrubbed her website of her extreme positions in an attempt to mislead the voters of WA state who she knows don’t agree with her. #WASen https://www.huffpost.com/entry/gop-candidate-tiffany-smiley-website_n_6310e628e4b088f7423b9dde
“A rock-solid conservative vote.” That’s what Tiffany Smiley tells her donors she’ll be in the US Senate. You know what that means? A national abortion ban, tax cuts for the rich, ending Social Security and Medicare, and so much worse. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – POLITICAL DIVISION
Wow Tiffany Smiley sure is lowering the political temperature here by yelling nonsense at the moderators, her opponent, and the voters of WA state. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – SENIORS/SOCIAL SECURITY
Last week Tiffany Smiley said she wouldn’t cut Social Security & Medicare for people currently or soon-to-be on it. What about the rest of us?! #WASen
Don’t let Republicans lie their way into office. If Mitch McConnell wins a majority in the Senate, he’ll end Social Security and Medicare as we know it & Tiffany Smiley will help him do it. #WASen
SAMPLE TWEETS – TAXES/IRS AGENTS
MAGA Republican Tiffany Smiley wants to make the Trump tax cuts for billionaires and giant corporations PERMANENT. She doesn’t work for the working people of WA state. #WASen
FACT CHECK: Tiffany Smiley’s claim about 87,000 IRS agents is a LIE. She can’t win on her platform so of course she has to spread misinformation and try to mislead voters. I’m not falling for it. #WASen https://www.king5.com/article/news/verify/smiley-ad-stadium-irs-agents-targeting-families-verify/281-dc0187a6-9272-4d76-9524-1eca36b251c9
