Murphy Running For AG
He says his work in support of law enforcement also includes the Danny Faulkner Bill.
“Danny Faulkner was a Philadelphia police officer who was murdered in the line of duty. My dad served with him and so did my uncle, and I passed the Danny Faulkner Bill which will give federal scholarships to the children of fallen cops or firefighters who were killed in the line of duty.”
Murphy’s father was a sergeant in the Philadelphia Police Department and his uncle was an inspector. He is a Democrat who lost his Eighth District seat to Republican Mike Fitzpatrick in November after serving two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. The district is mostly in Bucks County, but it includes small pieces of Montgomery County and Northeast Philadelphia.
