In addition to funding his Super PAC, Patrick Murphy’s Republican parents have donated large amounts of money to Democrats that always seem to lead to endorsements for Patrick – like Al Franken and members of the Florida House delegation.
Now it looks like Patrick’s father has used his cash to bag a bigger fish – Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.
Reid’s Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee received $33,400 from Thomas Murphy shortly after it endorsed Patrick. And now Reid has come out and called on Alan Grayson to get out of the race – certainly the major donation from Patrick’s father has nothing to do with that – right? Right?
“If Harry Reid is really that concerned about unethical Democratic Congressmen from Florida running for the Senate, the first thing he should do is take a second look at young Patrick Murphy’s rapid rise to prominence. He might not like what he finds.” – Senate Leadership Fund Spokesman Ian Prior
