Murphy says he raised $550,000 in first quarter

by George Bennett | April 4th, 2013

The campaign of freshman Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, says it collected more than $550,000 during the first quarter of 2013 for a race that is being targeted by the national GOP.

Murphy’s campaign says it has more than $650,000 in cash on hand for the 2014 race.

By comparison, former Republican Rep. Allen West, the prolific fundraiser Murphy narrowly defeated last year, raised $456,873 in his first quarter as a freshman in 2011.

The fundraising quarter ended Sunday and Federal Election Commission reports aren’t due until April 15, but Murphy’s campaign was eager to release its fundraising figure in a Wednesday press release.

Republicans haven’t fielded a candidate to challenge Murphy in GOP-leaning District 18, but the GOP has already launched online ads attacking Murphy.

    Where do I send my check?
    Woot no more West!

    Murphy won because West was always the loser….

    FYI: The tea party/TPublican party in my opinion seems to “redefine” disconnection and corruption.

    When government money was given to banks in bailouts and bank executives took lavish vacations that got everyone upset but west did nothing about it.

    he was our elected official and he sat on his “A” while pandering to “DRILL BABY DRILL, and we all know how that worked out. (still will not eat anything from the gulf)

    I would think that to big to jail would have had a howling effect – so where was the tgea party Representative?

    Taking donations from BP – That’s Where.

    As long as there are laws that allow this sort of thing, this will happen.

    However it does seem hypocritical when they complain wanting smaller government but are not afraid to take government funds for themselves.
