Democrat Bob Graham—a former governor and U.S. senator—is endorsing Rep. Patrick Murphy’s bid to be Florida’s next senator. 

Graham believes Murphy will be an effective advocate for the state.

“That ambassadorial role is extremely important,” Graham says.  “I’m confident that Patrick with his knowledge energy and his demeanor will be a very effective representative for Florida interests in Washington.”

Murphy has already racked up a number of major endorsements including President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.  He’s running for the Democratic nomination against fellow Rep. Alan Grayson.
