Barack Obama, Joe Biden Back Patrick Murphy in Florida Senate Race

Even as a new poll shows him trailing U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., in the Democratic primary to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., was endorsed by President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday morning. 

“I am proud to endorse Congressman Patrick Murphy for the United States Senate,” Obama said on Wednesday. “Patrick has been a tireless champion for middle-class families and a defender of the economic progress that American workers and businesses have made. In Congress, he's fought to strengthen Medicare and Social Security, reform our criminal justice system, and protect a woman's right to choose. Floridians can count on Patrick Murphy to stand up for them every day as their next senator."

"I'm proud to endorse Congressman Patrick Murphy for U.S. Senate, a leader who knows what's important: growing our economy from the middle class out, helping families put food on the table and save a little for the future,” Biden said. “Patrick Murphy has the progressive values, the work ethic, and the youthful energy the U.S. Senate needs. He'll work tirelessly to bring people together to make a difference for Florida's middle class."

"I am honored that President Obama and Vice President Biden are endorsing my campaign for Florida's middle class families,” Murphy said. “The president, the  vice president and I share the same values and commitment — strengthening Social Security and Medicare for our seniors, protecting a woman's right to choose, and growing America’s middle class. Over the past seven years, President Obama and Vice President Biden have been champions for Democrats and hardworking families across our country, and I am humbled and proud to receive their endorsement and campaign shoulder-to-shoulder with them for what we believe in.”
Murphy’s camp announced that Biden will be campaigning with the congressman later this month. 


Grayson is the Michele Bachmann of the Left. Please, lets stop these politics of stupid. This is a winnable seat, lets not nominate someone who can't win.

Murphy is a republican in disguise! The Man is a Democrat In Name Only! We Need Alan Grayson and Bernie Sanders!

We NEED Murphy for the US Senate and Hillary Clinton for the Presidency!

My wife and I plan to vote for Patrick Murphy, a common sense man with great values and smart leadership. The Democratic party and the state of Florida don't need their own version of Ted Cruz or Donald Trump.

F this Republican is disguise. Grayson is a true progressive and not a DNC puppet like Murphy. I'll take Grayson - the good and bad- over this "converted" Democrat. The Florida Democratic is the worst and most corrupt party, who should remain neutral. I'm a millennial and I plan on voting for Grayson. A fighter against the establishment and fighter for progressive values. The days of establishment politics is over!

We NEED Grayson for the US Senate and Bernie Sanders for the Presidency!
