House Majority PAC, the Democratic super PAC that works to elect Democrats to the House, is going on the air Tuesday with an ad attacking 12-term Florida Republican Rep. John L. Mica and introducing Democrat Stephanie Murphy as a "new approach to get the job done." 

Democrats have been eyeing Florida's 7th District as a possible pickup opportunity but didn't have a candidate until Murphy announced her candidacy the day before Florida's June 24 filing deadline. Democrat Bill Phillips suspended his campaign in April.
