MURRAY: I believe that there's a place for real people in government. When I was elected to the state senate, I was told, "You can't make a difference." I never accepted that. I went ahead and succeeded with family leave, improving our schools, and passing stronger consumer protection legislation. But our greatest challenge remains in Washington, D.C. We need to reinvest in research and development, manufacturing and high technology. These are common-sense steps, but they demand courage. Leadership must begin now.
ANNOUNCER: Patty Murray for U.S. Senate. A voice for real change.
