“Of course, if I lose the election, yes, I would accept that,” Smiley told KIRO Newsradio after being pressed by reporter Sam Campbell.
Smiley has been locked in a contentious race with Murray. Most polls show Murray ahead, but with Smiley gaining ground.
Smiley is beginning a state-wide bus tour even though ballots have already dropped.
She was in Covington, Wash., while Vice President Kamala Harris was visiting Seattle.
“All and all, vice president Kamala Harris has failed us. She has failed her children,” Smiley said. “She’s failed Washington state, and Senator Patty Murray has gone along and made it worse.”
Smiley went on to blame President Joe Biden, along with Harris and Murray, for society’s problems.
“In Washington state, it is easier for a child to find fentanyl than it is for a parent to get baby formula.”
Harris was in town to fundraise with Murray and to announce federal funds for electric school buses across the country.
Smiley said that Murray had 30 years in Washington, D.C. to help fix problems like crime and inflation. Instead, Smiley said those issues have only gotten worse.
“Murray has no agenda,” Smiley said. “We can’t afford six more years of Murray.”
