House Majority PAC Congratulates Patrick Murphy In FL-18

November 8, 2012

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC today offered congratulations to Patrick Murphy on what appears to be a victory over Allen West in FL-18. House Majority PAC spent $2,400,000 in FL-18 airing multiple TV ads and creating a substantial mail program. House Majority PAC spent more in this race than any other nationwide – and was the top-spending Democratic group in FL-18.

“Congratulations to Patrick Murphy on what seems clear is a hard-fought victory,” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of House Majority PAC. “After Allen West’s grandstanding and divisiveness, South Florida will benefit from Patrick Murphy’s commitment to fight for the middle class, to protect and strengthen Medicare and Social Security and to create jobs.”

Murphy appears to have won despite a clear Republican spending advantage in this district. In fact, in just the last two weeks of the campaign, Republicans outspent Democrats on TV by $1.1 million.
