WASHINGTON D.C. — Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers has endorsed Tiffany Smiley for U.S. Senate.
“Tiffany has the clear vision to work for a better, free and more propserous Washington for all our families,” McMorris Rodgers said in a statement.

Smiley, a Republican, announced her candidacy earlier this week with the hope of unseating incumbent Democrat Patty Murray.
Smiley has long been an advocate for veterans. Her husband, Scotty, was blinded by a suicide bomber in 2006 and she took on the Veterans Administration when he was not receiving the care he needed.
The Pasco native said she hopes to focus on jobs and quality of life for Washingtonians, and also committed to continuing her work defending and supporting veterans.
