Why I'm standing with Jenny Durkan for Mayor of Seattle

by Patty Murray - U.S. Senator for Washington State

Since President Trump was elected last year, people in Seattle have been resisting in so many ways, big and small. From the Women's March, to the incredible crowds at Sea-Tac to fight back against the illegal and immoral refugee ban, to parents and teachers standing up and speaking out against Betsy DeVos, and so much more - Seattle has led the way in making it clear that we can do a whole lot better as a country than the path President Trump is leading us down.

I have been proud to be your voice in the United States Senate, doing everything I can to fight back against President Trump's hateful, divisive agenda. I couldn't have resisted President Trump's agenda nearly as effectively without your amazing support, and today I am asking you to support Jenny Durkan for Mayor of Seattle to stand with me to keep up the fight.

President Trump represents the short-term triumph in America of hatred and division, empty promises, and insults and personal attacks. Jenny represents the exact opposite of President Trump, and it would send an incredible signal if she were elected and make it clear that wherever President Trump is trying to take America, Seattle is going somewhere else.

As first openly-gay U.S. Attorney, Jenny has dedicated her career to fighting hatred and bringing people together, working hard and delivering actual results, and standing up for the most vulnerable families against discrimination and hate crimes. Can you think of a time when this has been needed more than right now?

I've seen what it takes to stand up to President Trump. I've done it. It takes a willingness to fight and win, of course. But it also takes the ability to show something more than fight. It takes a willingness to work hard and build coalitions of people who can come together around a shared interest in a better country than the one President Trump is trying to sell. I believe Jenny's experience and values will help her do exactly that as the next mayor of Seattle and I am asking all of you to stand with me to help her get elected.

People in Seattle care so much about the future of our great city, and there has been so much energy, excitement, and great ideas in this campaign - from all sides. But I know Jenny, I've seen her stand up to President Trump on the front lines at Sea-Tac and every day in her work - and I am confident she will be an amazing mayor and partner in the fight against President Trump.

I ask all of you to keep standing with me, to stand with Jenny, and to keep showing President Trump that we can fight back and lead by example.
