Join us for a live chat with Rep. Patrick Murphy, Thursday at 1:30pm Eastern

OpenLeft explains it well enough for all of us:

Please join us tomorrow, Thursday October 21st at 1:30 PM EST, for a live chat with Rep. Patrick Murphy

One of the more interesting races to watch has been that of Rep. Patrick Murphy, Democrat of Pennsylvania. The Hill poll out today has him up 46-43 over former Republican Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, a remarkable swing from a poll that had him down double-digits just a few weeks ago. Murphy has always been of interest to me because he was the original co-sponsor and leader on the successful effort to pass repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell in the House- something stand-up for this straight veteran to do from a challenging district with a strong challenger lining up (despite the numbers on DADT, everyone was telling him to focus solely on jobs, jobs, jobs and stay away from those gay issues. Needless to say, he ignored them). He counted the votes and worked hard on the inside.

Today, the Philadelphia Inquirer endorsed him, and tomorrow morning will be final two debates. Afterwards, we’re having him here on OpenLeft simultaneously with AMERICABlog, Pam’s House Blend, The Bilerico Project, and Good As You for a live chat about his campaign, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and whatever else is on your mind.

Please join us tomorrow, Thursday October 21st at 1:30 PM EST, for a live chat with Rep. Patrick Murphy.

And, we’ve got an ActBlue page for Murphy here.
