PASCO - A local veterans advocate has announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate.
Republican Tiffany Smiley, 38, of Pasco, will challenge incumbent Sen. Patty Murray, D-Shoreline, in the 2022 election.
Smiley is a nurse and has been active advocating for wounded veterans since her husband, Scotty Smiley, was wounded and blinded by a suicide bomber in Iraq in 2005.
She said she had to fight the federal government to get help for her husband.
The Smileys are raising three boys.
Murray is in her fifth term as a senator, having first been elected in 1992.
