Murray campaigns in Kennewick days before election
KENNEWICK, Wash., -- Senator Patty Murray toured Eastern Washington Saturday and she is not stopping until Monday in Seattle in the close race for the Senate Seat. Murray, who has served as Senator for 18 years, spoke to a full house at Highlands Grange Hall in Kennewick. She was introduced by a former marine and a Hanford worker while she stressed her biggest campaign points, helping Hanford workers and veterans, funding education and not going back to Bush Administration Tactics.
The senator's campaign also addressed anonymous donors contributing to Dino Rossi's campaign to run a lot of ads on television, and she asked for volunteers to help her spread her message. "I need you to fight for me. We are three days away from this election. It is very close, every vote is going to count. We need every single person to vote and to send their ballots in, said Murray."
And right on Union Street, a handful of The Tri-Cities Tea Party members held up signs protesting Murray. Jerry Martin, a member said, "We want you to vote for conservatives, and we want to try to let patty Murray know that we are not happy with ObamaCare." The polls are saying Murray and Rossi are virtually tied in the race.
