“It is clear from the strong backing Rep. Murphy continues to receive that the American people are tired of the partisan bickering that led to the do-nothing Congresses in the past.  They want real leadership that puts their interests above party lines like what Patrick has brought to Washington,” said Murphy for Congress finance director Mandi Karp.  “He is focused on serving the people from Florida’s 18th district and they continue to show their support for the work he is doing both in Washington and locally.”
