Michael Murphy on the Year of the Grievance Candidate
This week on Masters in Business I sit down with Michael Murphy, co-founder of the Right to Rise superpac, partner at Revolution Agency and campaign consultant for former presidential candidate Jeb Bush.
A self-described conservative, Murphy discusses the media, the state of campaign finance and how superpacs have upended the traditional election laws. His Right to Rise pac raised $100 million dollars for Bush, but has been since wound down.
We talk about the election and how Bush won the “donor campaign,” but knew it was a year where grievance candidates had the inside track. Murphy suggested the Republican primary was a “drunken bender,” and in Donald Trump the party has picked a candidate who is a long shot to win the general election.
