Patrick Murphy gears up for the TV air war against Alan Grayson



The Patrick Murphy U.S. Senate campaign has reserved nearly $1.7-million in TV time for commercials over the final four weeks leading up to the Aug. 30 primary against Democrat Alan Grayson. The campaign has reserved air time in the Tampa, Orlando, Miami and Jacksonville markets.

Murphy already has radio ads airing in much of the state targeting African-American voters and featuring Barack Obama, and as of March 31 had a lot more money on hand than Grayson: $5.6 million versus $400,000.
