“I will be working hard over the next three months to talk to people across Washington state, ask for their vote, and keep fighting to be their voice in the Senate”

“I am running for reelection because there is so much more Congress should be doing to help workers, veterans, families, and the economy—and I want to keep up the fight”

(Seattle, WA)—Today, Senator Patty Murray released the following statement after the results from the primary election came in showing her the clear winner.

“Thank you to all of the voters across Washington state who supported me and my work fighting for a country and state that works for all families, not just the wealthiest few. We have a long way to go before this campaign is over and I will be working hard over the next three months to talk to people across Washington state, ask for their vote, and keep fighting to be their voice in the Senate. 

“I am frustrated that Congress isn't working the way it should be, but I want to keep fighting to break through the gridlock and dysfunction, get results, and make sure our economy is growing in a way that creates jobs and raises wages for workers and the middle class. 

“I am running for reelection because there is so much more Congress should be doing to help workers, veterans, families, and the economy—and I want to keep up the fight and make sure Washington state families have a strong voice at the table who will stand up for their values and priorities.

“I congratulate my Republican opponent Chris Vance on making it through the top two primary. And I want to thank all of the volunteers who worked so hard these past few weeks to encourage voters to return their ballots and participate in this election. There is so much at stake this November from the top of the ticket to the bottom, and I look forward to talking to voters across our state about the issues they care about and my plans to keep fighting on their behalf.”
