US Rep. Tim Murphy is up with his first ad of the general election, an upbeat spot going over many of the same issues (health care, unfair trade, veterans issues) that he mentioned at a forum yesterday.
Democratic challenger Larry Maggi went up Tuesday with another upbeat, introductory spot.
His campaign put out this statement on the Republican incumbent's ad:
“Southwest Pennsylvania deserves better than a Congressman that says one thing on TV at home and votes another way in Congress. Congressman Tim Murphy twice voted to end traditional Medicare, end guaranteeing benefits for seniors and forcing them to pay $6,400 each year in out of pocket expenses while using that money to give more tax breaks to millionaires. That is unacceptable—you cannot save Medicare by ending Medicare. Democrats and Republicans need to come together on this to save the Medicare guarantee for this and future generations,” said Larry Maggi.
