On Monday, November 6 – the final full day of campaigning prior to Tuesday’s election, challenger Patrick Murphy (D) will be up before dawn, in his bid to unseat freshman Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R) in Pennsylvania’s 8th CD, comprised primarily of Bucks County. Independent polls have indicated that this contest has no clear favorite, heading into the election.

According to a Sunday press release, from Murphy campaign communications director Carrie James, Murphy’s Monday will begin by greeting SEPTA riders at the Warminster train station from 6:30 to 8:00 AM – before the sun rises. After campaigning among commuters, Murphy will head to the Eagle Diner in Warminster for an hour.

In the afternoon, Murphy will hold a rally at 1:30 PM at his campaign’s Levittown headquarters, where he will exhort volunteers to knock on doors and encourage area residents to turn out for him in the following day’s election.

These grass-roots, low-key events follow up a big weekend for Murphy, when Democratic celebrities all campaigned with him throughout the region. With Democrats poised to make huge gains and take control of the U.S. House, Murphy’s contest with Fitzpatrick has taken on new importance, among strategists on both sides.
