PASCO, WA – Veterans advocate and U.S. Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley (R-WA) is proud to announce that NBA Hall of Famer and Gonzaga University legend John Stockton endorses her campaign for United States Senate because she is a political outsider the people of Washington State can count on.
In a video message, John Stockton said: “I’m John Stockton. I grew up in Spokane, Washington and I call Spokane my home. When Tiffany decided to run, we got together and we talked about what she’s thinking and what she believes in. I just think there’s no other possibility out there but Tiffany. Tiffany is one of those people who looks you right in the eye and tells you what she believes in, and it comes from the heart, and I believe you can count on that.”
“She’s a person who’s fought for some very difficult things in her life and she’s honest, which you hear all the time, but she is. She’s a political outsider and I don’t think she’ll ever let us down. She’s going to work hard. She’s going to dig down and do what’s right. I think we can count on that every single time, and that’s why I’m supporting Tiffany Smiley,” concluded Stockton.
Tiffany Smiley said: “I am honored to have John Stockton join Team Smiley! John is a basketball legend and hero in our community. My commitment to the people of Washington State is to represent our values in Washington, DC, and it’s going to take team work from all of us to bring the change we need. I look forward to working with John in the months to come to score a victory next November.”
