A high-powered Republican challenger has emerged to take on Democratic Sen. Patty Murray in her bid for a fifth term representing Washington State.

Chris Vance — The Evergreen State's former Republican Party chairman — kicked off his campaign on Tuesday, the Olympian newspaper reports.

The Seattle native Vance said he will concentrate on policy proposals with "no cheesy, Hollywood-style attack ads" — proposals that include a simpler tax code and changes to Medicare and Social Security.

But he did take a jab at Murray as he blasted the "dysfunction" in Congress, saying,
"The truth is, after 24 years in the Senate, Patty Murray is part of the problem,"
Vance, 53, served as GOP chairman from 2001 to 2006.

Murray, 64, was first elected in 1992, and serves as Senate Majority Conference Secretary since 2007. She is the highest-ranking woman in the Senate.

Murray won her narrowest reelection in 2010, whisking by Republican Dino Rossi with 52 percent of the vote.
