WPEC video: Congressman Patrick Murphy is running for US Senate

Congressman Patrick Murphy made it official on Monday morning. He is running for Marco Rubio’s US Senate seat in 2016. The Treasure Coast Democrat released this statement:

“I’ve spent the last several months considering the best way I can continue to serve the people of Florida, and today, after much thought and discussion with people from across this state, I’m proud to announce that I will be a candidate for the United States Senate in 2016.

“I’m a CPA and small businessman – not a career politician – who saw the dysfunction in Washington and decided to do something about it. I’m running for the U.S. Senate for the same reason I ran for Congress in 2012 – Washington is full of hyper-partisan politicians who can’t, or won’t, get anything done, and Florida deserves better.
