Pat Murphy supporting Monica Vernon as Democratic nominee

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Not much luck for Pat Murphy for the primary election.

He was hoping for a repeat of two years ago when he won the Democratic nomination, but unfortunately didn't get enough votes.

At his watch party, Murphy says he is supporting Monica Vernon as the nominee.

He says the most important thing now is to unseat Congressman Rod Blum.

"The bottom line is, there is a big difference between Rod Blum and Monica Vernon. Monica Vernon would be much better for this district, than Rod Blum.  That's not even a close call for me, so we need to see what we can do to get her elected in November," said Murphy.

Murphy's campaign was more grassroots compared to Vernon.

He says they've won state elections like this in the past, so he thought it was possible for the Congressional office.
