Murphy puts Allen West’s words in the mouths of kids to decry ‘bullying and name-calling’by George Bennett | August 23rd, 2012
Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy‘s newest TV ad uses kids on a playground to repeat some of Republican Rep. Allen West‘s controversial words and decry the incumbent’s “bullying and name-calling.”
The ad depicts Murphy, a 29-year-old rookie candidate who’s being helped by at least $250,000 in superPAC contributions from his father, as the more mature candidate in the race.
“I’ll reach across the aisle and solve problems,” Murphy tells voters in the Palm Beach-Treasure Coast swing district. As for West, the ad concludes with a telegenic girl declaring: “You need a time out.”
