Today, Hillary Clinton is heading to Patrick “Silver Spoon” Murphy’s South Florida neighborhood and it stands to reason that an endorsement of Murphy should follow.
Add to that the fact that Patrick Murphy’s parents have given big money to Hillary Clinton over the years. Patrick’s father Thomas gave $4000 to her 2006 Senate campaign, $2300 to her 2007 Presidential campaign, and $2700 to her 2016 Presidential campaign. Patrick’s mother Leslie also gave $1000 to Hillary’s 2006 Senate campaign, $2300 to her 2007 Presidential campaign, and $2700 to her 2016 Presidential campaign.
And if there’s one pattern we’ve seen it’s that endorsements of young Patrick usually aren’t far behind his parents campaign checks.
Hillary Clinton has willingly inserted herself into Senate primaries in Ohio and Illinois and backed the candidate with the DSCC stamp of approval. If she lets her visit to Palm Beach go by without endorsing Patrick Murphy, whose parents are major donors to her campaigns, it would signal a serious lack of confidence in his chances to defeat Alan Grayson.
