Statement on Certification of Patrick Murphy's Victory in CD-18

TALLAHASSEE, FL — Following the certification of election results in Congressional District 18 showing that Patrick Murphy has officially won the election and is outside a recount margin, the Florida Democratic Party issued the following statement:  


“The Florida Democratic Party once-again congratulates Congressman-elect Patrick Murphy on his now official election victory over Tea Party Titan Allen West. Throughout Florida, the citizens of our state sent a decisive message to both Washington and Tallahassee that they are sick of the broken, Tea Party extremists epitomized by politicians like Rick Scott and Allen West and want a new direction for our politics. Patrick is a rising star in our party who is standing up for the middle class families of Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie, and he will be a strong voice for the people of his district in Congress.”

Florida Democrats have now officially picked up four congressional seats — roughly 50-percent of the number of Democratic pickups made nationwide.
