Go Murphy!

Murphy campaign press release:

Levittown, PA – Patrick Murphy, endorsed Democratic Congressional candidate for Pennsylvania's Eighth District, is gaining more and more support for his campaign by the day. His campaign is charging ahead after a great first quarter in fundraising, where, according to reports just filed with the Federal Elections Commission, Murphy out-raised incumbent Republican Mike Fitzpatrick's by more than $16,000.

"I appreciate all the support this campaign has been getting over the past few months," said Patrick Murphy. "But no matter how much money we raise, this is a grassroots campaign at its heart. This campaign is about changing the direction of our country for the people of Bucks County. It's providing real prescription drug coverage for our seniors, bringing real ethics reform in Washington, and having a real plan to to fix the mess in Iraq. The support I've received makes it clear Bucks County is ready for a change, and I plan on delivering that change in November."

Patrick Murphy raised more than $250,000 in the first quarter. After receiving the Eighth District Democratic Party's official endorsement in February, he's gearing up for a primary victory in May, and a hard-fought victory in November. With the help of hundreds of supporters, he's pushing ahead, ready to take his vision to Congress, and ready to guarantee the people of Bucks County are really represented in Washington.
