Congressman Patrick E. Murphy represents Florida’s 18th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Born and raised in Florida, Patrick worked as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) for Deloitte & Touche before starting his own environmental cleanup business. He was first elected to Congress in 2012 after defeating Tea Party firebrand Allen West.
In Congress, Murphy has focused on championing the middle class, strengthening Social Security and Medicare for future generations, protecting Florida’s environment and precious coastline, and breaking through the partisan gridlock in Washington. He currently serves on the House Financial Services and Intelligence committees, and is a founder and co-chair of the United Solutions Caucus, a bipartisan group of freshman and sophomore lawmakers dedicated to finding solutions to the nation’s fiscal issues. In 2014, Patrick was named Champion of the Everglades by the Florida Audubon Society.
