Murphy, Frankel use different Democratic convention strategies

by George Bennett | September 5th, 2012

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Democratic congressional hopeful Patrick Murphy has been making the rounds at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday and today while Palm Beach County’s other big-name Democratic candidate, Lois Frankel, is staying home.

Murphy and Frankel are two of the biggest Democratic non-incumbent fundraisers in America, with each raking in more than $2 million.

Murphy, a first-time candidate who’s challenging nationally known Republican Rep. Allen West, says he’s run into “a lot of people who don’t like Allen West. Of course, we’re in friendly territory.”

Frankel, a former West Palm Beach mayor and state legislator who also ran for Congress 20 years ago, is “spending the week in South Florida, talking to voters and hearing their concerns,” spokesman Joshua Karp said. Frankel faces Republican Adam Hasner for an open Palm Beach-Broward seat.

    @ Bennett & Kennedy,
    Slow Day?

    Smart move on both there parts.

    Patrick Murphy’s race is more important. Lois has a very good chance to beat Hasner. Everyone expects it.

    Roger Dunshee for Twin Vee, Patrick needs to pointout that powerboats all took a hit in economy.

    Patrick Murphy needed to really highlight how little actual education Allen West has on Finance & Economic.

    Get rid of kid sounds in commercials and Patrick hits West head on, war is not business, nor the ability to understand complex tax laws or economic theory.

    Either people will elect someone with no business experience (Allen West) or a MASTER’s Degree CPA (Patrick Murphy).

    Patrick’s got to not worry about shaking it up.

  2. What going on here? Says:

    Patrick Murphy is not a registered CPA in Florida. Also, he has NO business experience outside of his father’s firm and donating money to the judge to get off a drunk arrest in front of a gay bar. — After stiff a cab driver. Stop making things up.

  3. HankS Says:

    Compared to Congressman West, young Murphy is outclassed in every category. That’s why he’s hiding from real public debates with Rep. West.

    Remarks printed in Politico earlier today: “Patrick Murphy is nothing more than an empty suit who lacks the guts …. to debate Allen West man to man.”

    If you compare backgrounds – Congressman West has Murphy beat by a mile. Go West !!!

  7. Forgone Conclusion Says:

    West has been a lousy Congressman. His greatest “asset” is his mouth. Look up and see what very little meaningful legislation West has introduced. West does NOT respond to his constituents correspondence. He sends an automatic email which acknowledges your email, promises a response but NEVER delivers. A good Congressperson responds to his/her constituents even when he/she doesn’t agree with them. West is good at running his mouth, dividing people with his “crap sandwich” rhetoric but in actuality accomplishes NOTHING! West is a real good example of the definition of an “Oreo.” He is nothing more than an empty suit with a big mouth. Nothing more, nothing less!

    Murphy is a kid still wet behind his ears. What were the Democrat thinking?
    GO WEST!

  9. Commadorable Says:

    Murphy, a candidate with virtually no qualifications, fits right into this DNC sideshow, along with an inpeached president, a dead senator who scored the first kill in the war on women, and a nyphomaniac! We don’t need another amateur in Washington!
