Murphy draws another out-of-state Republican to South Floridaby George Bennett | May 23rd, 2013
Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., was in town recently to interview potential Murphy challengers. McHenry heads up recruiting efforts for the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Rep. David Joyce, R-Ohio, is scheduled to make a Murphy-related visit on Friday — but not to try to oust Murphy from Congress.
Joyce and Murphy are co-sponsors of the Savings, Accountability, Value and Efficiency (SAVE) Act, which aims to trim $200 billion in federal spending over 10 years by implementing some efficiency recommendations put forward by the Government Accountability Office.
Murphy and Joyce are scheduled to discuss the SAVE Act and the prospects for bipartisan cooperation at a Forum Club of the Palm Beaches luncheon on Friday at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.
