Marco Rubio's ad says Patrick Murphy embellished University of Miami college degree
Rubio’s TV ad says, "Murphy embellished, according to reports, his University of Miami academic achievement."
Murphy has described his University of Miami record in conflicting ways in recent years. On his congressional office and U.S. Senate campaign websites he said he had "dual degrees" when in fact he had a single degree with a double major in two areas of study: accounting and finance. When the Herald/Times pointed out the inaccuracy, his campaign said it was an error and fixed it. Murphy had also referred to "dual degree" at times in the past while other times his websites reflected a single degree.
