Patrick Murphy didn't campaign with Hillary Clinton in Florida on Friday, citing a scheduling conflict. But Clinton mentioned Murphy's name at a rally in Coral Springs -- and got in a jab at the Republican whom Murphy is trying to unseat: U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.
"I sure hope Florida sends some reinforcements to the Senate and elect Congressman Patrick Murphy," Clinton said. "I think Florida deserves a full-time senator, don't you?"
Clinton didn't endorse Murphy until after his primary against Orlando Rep. Alan Grayson.
Warming up the crowd at the Coral Springs Gymnasium were U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston and Alcee Hastings of Delray Beach, among others.
