Patrick Murphy added to his campaign communications team in September



Democrat Patrick Murphy beefed up his communications team last month, as he entered the general election phase of his U.S. Senate campaign against Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

Two months ahead of the November election, Murphy hired Peter True, a press secretary for retiring California Democratic U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer.

According to his LinkedIn page, True had worked for Boxer's office for more than four years. Before that, he held communications jobs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and other U.S. Senate offices, including a few months as an intern in Harry Reid's office when Reid was majority leader in 2009.

True joined Murphy's campaign as its press secretary. Murphy's communications team is still led by communications director Joshua Karp and deputy communications director Galia Slayen.
