GOP strategist Mike Murphy caught the political bug early: he began his career as a college student making radio ads out of his dorm room for a long-shot congressional race. He’s gone on to specialize in winning statewide campaigns for governor and Senate. He’s been the lead strategist for many major Republican figures, including John McCain, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mitt Romney. He also had a role in the 2016 campaign season. “I ran the Jeb Bush super PAC,” he explains, “which gives me the unique credential of having blown, oh, over 95 million dollars and not winning.” Mike joined us to discuss his vocal criticism of Donald Trump, the media’s role in modern politics and why he’s a hopeless romantic when it comes to presidential races.
