Democratic U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy is launching the first television commercial of her re-election campaign Wednesday with an ad that is largely introductory while presenting her in moderate, aisle-crossing terms.
The freshman congresswoman from Winter Park easily brushed back a Democratic primary challenge Tuesday from progressive Chardo Richardson. She now is focusing on the Republican primary winner, state Rep. Mike Miller, also of Winter Park, for the Nov. 6 election for Florida’s 7th Congressional District.
In her 30-second spot, “Working”, Murphy briefly mentions her backgrounds as a former businesswoman, educator, and national security specialist, and adds that she also has, “run this place too,” as the video shows her at home with her husband and children.
“Through it all, no one cared if you were a Republican or Democrat,” she declares. “You just focused on getting the job done.”
Murphy then stresses her record in Congress, mentioning, without any specific detail, bipartisan efforts she pursued for laws for such causes as improving veterans care, making communities safer, and investing in Florida’s schools.
The Murphy campaign said it is also launching a similar 15-second digital ad.
