(Spokane, WA) — Today, the People for Patty Murray Campaign officially announced Senator Patty Murray’s participation in a statewide U.S. Senate debate on Sunday, Oct. 23 at 5:00 p.m. PT at the Myrtle Woldson Performing Arts Center at Gonzaga University in Spokane, in partnership with the Spokesman-Review and League of Women Voters.
Senator Murray issued the following statement:
“I look forward to debating Tiffany Smiley this October in Spokane. This will be one of the most consequential elections of our lifetimes. I want voters in Washington state to understand there is a clear choice at the ballot box this fall. So much is on the line: a woman’s right to choose, the future of our democracy, and whether we build an economy that works for everyone–not just those at the very top.
“I am especially grateful to the Spokesman-Review and League of Women Voters for their hard work in organizing this important opportunity for the Spokane community and all of Washington state.”
Since mid-August, the People for Patty Murray Campaign has been in ongoing discussions regarding debates with stakeholders on the western side of the state. The campaign hopes that details will be finalized and an additional debate will be announced as quickly as possible.
