Well that didn't take long. U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy's hours-old campaign for the U.S. Senate is already sending out emails asking for money.
He hits incumbent Republican Senator Marco Rubio by saying he "denies climate change" and "wants to privatize Social Security."
Let the fun begin.
Murphy's email is below:
For the past several months, I’ve been listening to my friends, my family, and my fellow Floridians.
I’m hearing the same sentiment from everyone: Congress is broken. Politicians can’t or won’t get anything done. And Washington is headed in the wrong direction.
Someone needs to step up and do something about it.
Today, I want you to be among the first to know: I’m running for the United States Senate in 2016. Click here to become a Founding Member of my campaign today >>
Our current Senator, Marco Rubio, is a career politician who has shown time and time again that he does not represent Florida’s middle class. Rubio denies climate change is real and wants to privatize Social Security.
It’s clear: It’s time for Marco Rubio to go.
The people of Florida deserve a leader who spends every day in office working to restore the Everglades, fighting for the middle class, and protecting Social Security and Medicare. That’s exactly what I intend to do as the next United States Senator from the State of Florida.
Now we have to build a winning Senate campaign from the ground up. Will you become a Founding Member of my Senate campaign today?
Please chip in $25 or whatever you can to help launch my campaign for United States Senate >>
Thank you for being a part of this journey with me. I could not be more proud to have you on board.
