“Tiffany Smiley is no stranger to a significant challenge.
A military wife and nurse, she fought for her husband after the Army officer was permanently blinded during an attack in Iraq. Later, she was a driving force in the push that led to reforms at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that were signed into law by President Donald Trump.
Now she’s entering a new battle, as she launches a Republican challenge against longtime Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington State…
… “I’m a wife, I’m a mom, I’m a nurse, I’m a small business owner, I’m a military caregiver, and every day I’m talking to people in my community and this state that are struggling,” Smiley emphasized. “I was a voice for my husband when he didn’t have one, a voice for military families across the nation, and now I’m ready to be a voice for those in Washington state.”…
… “Smiley says her effort on behalf of her husband ‘opened my eyes to the failure of the federal government to protect and support our men and women in uniform.’
Her push for reforms landed her on national TV, including numerous interviews on FOX News – and helped to push the Trump administration and Congress to pass VA reforms…”
… “Smiley charges that ‘Murray has failed Washington families.’
‘She’s left Washington state behind. She’s focused on the wrong Washington,’ she argues. ‘Our system was not designed for career politicians. We need to hold her accountable and we need representatives, we need new voices, we need fresh voices.’
And Smiley stressed that ‘we need a senator who will fight for Washington jobs, our tax policies, our regulatory policies, and our trade policies, and I’m ready to be that voice.’
