Tiffany Smiley: I’m running for Senate because there’s still so much worth fighting for

On the most recent episode of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast, Republican Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley said she’s challenging Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) because the senator “has put Washington DC ahead of Washington state” and has “forgotten the struggle.” Murray was Washington state’s first female senator and has been in office for nearly 30 years. Smiley is the only Republican candidate in the race, thus far.

“I refuse to sit on the sidelines and watch my children’s future be diminished,” Smiley said. “We are a family that had been affected by bad policy.”

Sixteen years ago, Smiley’s husband Scotty lost his eyes in combat. During his recovery, the Smileys came to see that Veterans Affairs had many shortfalls. Smiley took her complaints straight to the White House. After fighting for attention on the issue she got customer service training for the VA and cut back on red tape around grants.

“In what other country could you stand up to the government to advocate for something better and see it happen?” Smiley said.

Smiley says while some might see her as an underdog, lately every senate race counts. “This race has national implications because we have a 50/50 senate,” Smiley said.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
