What Patrick Murphy and Marco Rubio are up to the week of Aug. 29
Patrick Murphy and Marco Rubio are expected to begin their general election campaigns this week, setting off a short but expensive and likely contentious race that could help decide control of the Senate.
Here is what the candidates are up to this week, as of Monday.
Murphy will have events Monday in Tampa and Orlando. On Tuesday, Election Day, he visits polling locations in Miami and Broward County then has his party in Palm Beach Gardens. On Wednesday, Murphy has a news conference in West Palm Beach.
Rubio on Monday has events in Cape Coral, Lynn Haven, Pensacola and Miami. On election night, Rubio will not be in Miami but Kissimmee. Presumably that means he’ll start Wednesday in the area. UPDATE: Rubio is fundraising in Texas on Wednesday.
