Pro-Rubio Super PAC hits 'Phony Patrick' Murphy in TV ad



Senate Leadership Fund is following through on a promise to spend $1.5 million in support of Marco Rubio, launching a TV ad attacking Patrick Murphy's background.

The ad, accompanied by a digital spot, will run on broadcast and cable in Tampa and Orlando, the Mitch McConnell-linked group said. The ad focuses on Murphy's work experience, which has come under scrutiny from reporters and opponents.

PolitiFact concluded that some assertions from opponents were stretched. Yet questions are unlikely to go away with Senate Leadership Fund and others turning them into TV ads.
