Giffords Endorses Senator Patty Murray for the US Senate

WASHINGTON, DCGiffords PAC, the gun violence prevention organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, announced today it is endorsing Senator Patty Murray for re-election to the US Senate. Senator Murray is a dedicated public servant, with an exemplary record of fighting on behalf of her constituents to keep them safe from gun violence. As the top Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, Senator Murray secured the first dedicated funding to research the causes and impacts of gun violence in over twenty years. This historic allocation conveyed to public health institutions that not only was research into gun violence allowed—it was necessary.

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords:
“Patty Murray has been a tireless leader in the fight to help save lives from gun violence. She is a true champion of commonsense gun safety legislation in the Senate, and the people of Washington State know that Senator Murray will always stand up to the gun lobby and secure the change we desperately need in this country. I am proud to endorse her in her re-election campaign. We need Patty in the Senate, and I know the people from the great state of Washington will send her back there to keep doing what she does best—fight, fight, fight for gun safety.” 

US Senate Candidate Patty Murray:

“I’m honored to have the endorsement of Giffords PAC in my re-election campaign. Throughout my career I’ve been clear that gun safety is top priority for me. As we continue to see the epidemic of gun violence unfold across the country, I am so thankful for Congresswoman Giffords’ heroic leadership and her shared dedication to this issue. I look forward to our continued partnership on the campaign trail and in the fight to end gun violence.”

In her nearly three decades of service, Senator Murray has consistently helped lead her caucus in advocating for commonsense gun safety measures like passing universal background checks and protecting women from domestic violence by limiting the ability of abusers to access firearms. Senator Murray will continue her relentless advocacy to keep American communities safe from the epidemic of gun violence. Giffords is proud to endorse Patty Murray for US Senate.
