Patrick Murphy to attend Hillary Clinton rallies in Sanford, Fort Lauderdale
In the final week before Election Day, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Murphy plans to stay busy on the campaign trail appearing with high-profile Democrats campaigning in Florida, either for themselves or as surrogates.
Murphy on Tuesday, for instance, will be with presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at her early voting events in Sanford and Fort Lauderdale.
Murphy is scheduled to address the crowd at both evening events and travel with Clinton enroute from Sanford to Fort Lauderdale, Murphy's campaign said.
Murphy, who has struggled with low statewide name recognition, has boosted his profile somewhat in the past few weeks since he first started attending and speaking at Clinton rallies, mostly in South Florida. He's benefited from prominent mentions by Clinton and President Barack Obama and other top Democrats, who simultaneously harshly criticized Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.
