Murphy Starts General Election with Commanding Fundraising Lead, Solid Bipartisan Record
WINTER PARK, FLA. – U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy released the following statement after officially securing the Democratic nomination to represent Florida’s Seventh Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Murphy, who was first elected in 2016, enters the race with a commanding fundraising lead and a solid record of bipartisan results. She is consistently rated as one of the most effective and bipartisan Members of Congress.
Statement from U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy:
“While folks in Washington and Tallahassee have been focused on pointing blame and scoring political points, I’ve worked with both parties to get results for Central Florida, to keep us safe, and to get our economy going again. I’m running to focus on jobs, security, and opportunity for every Florida family and to work in a bipartisan way to get our nation through this crisis.
“My Republican opponent spent the primary pledging his allegiance to President Trump, attacking women’s rights, and pushing to repeal our health care in the midst of a global pandemic. We need leaders who will put people over politics and pledge their allegiance to the Constitution – not a president.
“I look forward to an honest and vigorous campaign.”
