Republican Tiffany Smiley continues to keep pace with incumbent U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) as the election draws near. A Trafalgar Group poll reports Smiley is just two points behind Murray.

“I think Patty Murray’s desperate, and that shows I’m here to serve. Patty Murray wants to scare you,” Smiley said on the John Curley and Shari Elliker Show.

“Not on [my] watch will do-nothing, career politician Patty Murray phone it in for another six years. We are heading into recession, and she’s raising taxes. She’s now paying for student loan forgiveness. She failed to address a Fentanyl crisis that’s killing our kids. I think it looks like desperation. That’s why we will win this race.”

Smiley launched new commercials last week, focusing on tying Murray to the rise of crime in Seattle.

“I was 11 years old when [Murray] was first elected in Washington State, and we’ve just seen it decline,” said Smiley. “Just look at [her] voting record. Our pensions are decreasing. We’re losing jobs. We have a homeless crisis, humanitarian crisis, [and] a crime crisis.”
