Murphy tops $1 million; Frankel invokes 2012 foe for 2014 cash; West explains New Hampshire gigby George Bennett | July 8th, 2013

Read the latest on the Palm Beach-Treasure Coast congressional District 18 race in this week’s Politics column (subscriber content).
Also in the Politics column: One of the Republicans mentioned as a possible Murphy challenger is former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner, who lost a 2012 congressional race to Rep.

Finally, in a Politics column exclusive, former U.S. Rep. Allen West offers two reasons why he’s keynoting a Republican fundraiser in New Hampshire next month.
