Erin Murphy Falls in Florida

Florida Democrat Patrick Erin Murphy was defeated handily by incumbent Republican Sen. Marco Rubio on Tuesday, giving Republicans a boost in its effort to maintain control over the Senate.

The Associated Press called the race for Rubio at 8:05 P.M.
Rubio's late announcement that he would run to keep his seat dashed high hopes that Democrats had to gain a seat in Florida with Murphy, who emerged from a weak Democratic field to become the party's nominee. NBC's Chuck Todd said Democrats "really blew it" by selecting Murphy.
