Befitting his giant financial advantage over GOP primary rival Evan Feinberg, incumbent US Rep. Tim Murphy of Upper St. Clair is set to go on TV for the first time today with a spot regarding health care reform.
Proxies have already been on air both for and against Murphy but this is the first time either campaign will have advertised on TV. We're told by a source outside the campaign that it's a cable-only buy on GOP-friendly Fox. We'll post a copy as soon as we can. (UPDATE: It's below.)
At the end of the year Murphy reported more than $1 million in cash to Feinberg's $40,000. Democrat Larry Maggi is unopposed for the 18th District Democratic nod.
