Patrick Murphy sets 'major announcement' with laborers' union



U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, plans to make a "major announcement" Friday morning in Pompano Beach with leaders of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA).

A media advisory from the campaign includes no details on the substance of the announcement, but it looks to be another endorsement for the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate, who continues to rack up endorsements from the party establishment and key interest groups.

Murphy is running in a competitive primary against fellow U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, of Orlando, who's drawing his support from progressives and grassroots donors. North Palm Beach attorney Pam Keith is also seeking the Democratic nomination.
