Adding to his lengthy — and growing — list of establishment endorsements, U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy just landed the two biggest names possible for a Democrat: Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
The president and vice president of the United States are backing Murphy in his bid for Marco Rubio‘s U.S. Senate seat, Murphy’s campaign announced this morning.
And Biden will campaign with Murphy on March 28, the campaign said. Specific details haven’t been released yet.
In statements provided by the campaign, both Obama and Biden heaped praise on Murphy, a congressman from Jupiter, for his work supporting the middle-class and a host of other issues.
