Lee Murphy Announces U.S. Congressional Candidacy
Lee Murphy announced his candidacy for Delaware’s lone U.S. Congressional seat Tuesday night. He is the only Republican to file for the seat. He was joined by dozens of supporters at Banks’ Seafood Kitchen and Raw Bar on the Riverfront in Wilmington. 

Murphy is a retired Railroader who worked 35 years as a Conductor, Engineer, and in management for Amtrak , SEPTA, and Conrail. For the last 30 years, Murphy has also worked as a professional actor.

“I’ve been a blue collar worker my entire adult life,” he explained. “Delaware family’s household income has dropped $12,000 over the past decade. Why?”

During his address to supporters, Murphy explained how Delaware is not reaping the benefits of our nation’s booming economy, and how there are less and less opportunities for younger generations to stay in Delaware and thrive. “When we have three federal elected officials- Carper, Coons, and Blunt-Rochester- going to Washington solely to obstruct the President, is it  any wonder we don’t have prosperity here at home?”
