George Bennett: U.S. Congressman Patrick Murphy raised $750,000 in one week

 From George Bennett at the Post On Politics blog:
     Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy‘s 2016 Senate bid got off to a solid start, collecting $750,000 in the week after he announced his candidacy March 23, his campaign says.
     Murphy, who already had a House re-election fundraising structure in place, raised more than $1.25 million during the first quarter of 2015 and began this month with $1.6 million in cash on hand, according to a campaign press release.
