Patty Murray

  • Endorsed
  • Senate, washington

Patty Murray represents Washington State as the senior Senator, a seat she has held since 1992.

She was inspired to run for office by the threatened closure of her children's’ preschool program. After a legislator in Olympia called her a “mom in tennis shoes,” she organized over 13,000 people into a grassroots coalition to save the program. She then won election to the Shoreline School Board, and in 1988, the Washington State Senate. She was moved to run for the US Senate in 1991 after seeing only 2 women in the Senate during the Anita Hill hearings.

Sen. Murray has broken a number of glass ceilings during her time in the Senate. She was the first female chair of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee in the 112th Congress, and first female chair of the Senate Budget Committee during the 113th Congress. She is currently the chair of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee.

Patty Murray is a strong supporter of the two-state solution. In April 2021, she signed a letter led by Senators Tim Kaine and Chris Murphy calling for President Biden to rejoin President Obama’s Iran Deal, which verifiably blocked Iran's path to nuclear weapons. She also signed a Van Hollen-Kaine-Murphy-Merkley led vehicle which called on the administration to address the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
