Murphy to Deliver National Radio Address

Chris Murphy has been selected to give the national Democratic response to President Bush's weekly radio address. This is quite an honor, and just another sign of the strength of Murphy's candidacy. The broadcast will air Saturday morning directly after the Presidential address which begins at 11 A.M. EST. All major radio networks carry the broadcast including ABC, AP, AURN, CBS, CNN, C-SPAN, NPR, American Forces Radio, Voice of America, BBC, CBC, and Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Murphy's address will focus on the issue of Medicare, the Achilles heel of Nancy Johnson who wrote the Medicare prescription drug plan that forbids the government from negotiating with drug companies to obtain lower prescription drug prices for seniors. Perhaps that's why Johnson's campaign warchest is so heavily funded by the drug companies.
