Patty Murray

Murray, mom in tennis shoes in '92, stands her ground

In this photo taken April 23, 2015, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. poses for a portrait following an interview with The Associated Press in her office on Capitol Hill. There’s a disturbance in the force of the tradition-bound Senate and her name is Patty Murray. The Washington state Democrat, once famously dubbed “just a mom in tennis shoes,” is the reason behind an uncomfortable power standoff between two men who intend to lead the Democrats after Minority Leader Harry Reid retires. Murray, her quiet style and her clout amassed over 22 years in the Senate, poses a challenge to the way things work in Washington. She’s poised to be the first woman in the Senate’s top-tier leadership. And she’s outgrown her image as the ultimate underdog, if not the mom in storied footwear.(AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)WASHINGTON (AP) — There’s a disturbance in the force of the tradition-bound Senate and her name is Patty Murray.
