The senatorial race between Marco Rubio (R) and Patrick Murphy (D) finds Senator Marco Rubio leading with 47% to Murphy’s 42% of support according to Real Clear Politics.
Michael Ahrens, Rubio’s spokesman, commented on Murphy’s growing liberalism by saying that his “voting record proves how liberal he truly is and how he’s getting more liberal by the day. From standing in lock-step with President Obama’s disastrous foreign policy to supporting a public option in Obamacare, Patrick Murphy is a liberal. Florida voters can’t afford to elect a candidate who wants to be a rubber stamp for the same liberal policies he’s supported over the last four years.”
When Murphy first ran for Congress, he said that he considered himself a moderate, but when his voting record is analyzed, voters can see that he’s becoming as progressive as they come. He supports the Iran Nuclear Deal and voted to approve the deal. He said that the deal would ensure “peace in our time.” He responded to critics of the deal by saying that “this debate has proven to me that America and Israel are fortunate to have so many passionate, diverse voices who all want the same thing: a nuclear-free Iran, a secure Israel, and peace in our time. In the interest of all three, I will be supporting this deal.” Critics, however, likened the deal to when British Prime Minister Chamberlain agreed to let Hitler annex the Sudetenland in western Czechoslovakia in 1938 by also promising that it would bring “peace for our time.”
His campaign now calls him a “progressive” and his voting record shows it by supporting the President 70% and the party by 89% in 2015, but it’s still up to the voters to call him the winner.
