Murphy out with first general-election ad in Florida, attacking West for Medicare cuts

"While Allen West continues his longtime pattern of negative attacks and baseless claims, we need only to show the Congressman's unedited words to demonstrate how out of touch he is," he said in a statement.

The race for Florida's 22nd Congressional District will continue to heat up, as the competitors are currently running neck-and-neck, according to an internal poll released by Murphy's campaign. This new ad is a shift to the Medicare debate, after Murphy came under fire from West's campaign for an ad run by a pro-Murphy political action committee largely funded by Murphy's father that West decried as racist.
