Patrick Murphy races to define Allen West as threat to Medicare



Patrick Murphy, the Democrat challenging Rep. Allen West, is out of the general election gate with a TV ad paining West as a threat to Medicare. West voted for the Ryan budget, twice, as the ad says. The ad is backed by a "significant buy on network and cable TV in the West Palm Beach-Treasure Coast market," Murphy's campaign said.

West this morning challenged Murphy to four debates. "It’s time for Murphy to stop hiding behind his father’s racist, vicious attack ads and tell voters where he stand," he said.
