On part of Washington’s election laws, the top two candidates, regardless of political party, advance to the general election. Smiley will now move on to the general election on November 8, where she will square off against the incumbent Democrat Sen. Patty Murray.
Smiley has criticized Murray for refusing to acknowledge the dangers and depth of the ongoing fentanly crisis sweeping America are due to Democrat border policies. She has also blasted her opponent for repeatedly voting against a child tax credit that helps the state’s parents.
If it were up to Patty Murray, Washington families would potentially have $1,500 less in their pocketbooks per child per year. That’s not “looking out for you” like she promises to do in her campaign ad. It’s just more empty rhetoric from the 30-year senator! pic.twitter.com/djNx5wgwUO
