Ever since my election to the U.S. Senate in 2000, Patty Murray has been a steady leader and dependable partner -- for me and for all Washingtonians.
I have watched her fight tough legislative battles like saving Washington aerospace jobs and protecting our environment. And when complex energy solutions were needed to help provide a more stable future, Patty was right there with me, every step of the way.
I can't imagine a better friend and colleague, someone who dedicates herself every day to making her state and her country a better place.
That's why it's so important that we re-elect Patty Murray to the U.S. Senate in 2010 --and why I hope you'll join me in supporting her campaign, right now.
On issue after issue, Patty Murray has been a key leader for Washington state and for our country. Patty knows how hard our state has been hit by the recent economic downturn. She has worked aggressively to help Washington recover, create jobs, and remain competitive for economic growth and new industries.
As a former educator herself, Patty has been an outspoken advocate for education, fighting for the funding and support that our schools and teachers need to excel.
Patty has worked tirelessly for our nation's veterans, fighting to keep three VA hospitals open here in Washington while speaking out for better health care benefits for veterans across America.
It's clear: We need Patty Murray in the U.S. Senate. Now it's up to you and me to keep her there.
