NRSC focuses on Patrick Murphy’s resume in new ad

Rep. Patrick Murphy’s resume is at the center of a new ad from the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

The new ad hits Murphy over allegations he padded his resume. In June, CBS Miami ran a two-part report where it revealed he did not meet the minimum requirements to become a CPA in Florida and wasn’t a small business owner.

“Patrick Murphy lied about being a CPA, lied about being a small business owner, and continues to lie about his professional experience even after being exposed as a liar,” said Greg Blair, a spokesman for NRSC, in a statement. “Murphy is nothing more than an empty suit with a rich father who, with no accomplishments of his own, has resorted to making them up.”

The Murphy campaign has called the report misleading.

According to the NRSC, the ad is part of a significant ad buy in the Sunshine State. The ad will begin airing Wednesday in Tampa and Orlando media markets.

Murphy faces Sen. Marco Rubio in the November general election. The race is one of the most-watched Senate races in the nation, and outside organizations are expected to pour millions of dollars into the race.
