Jolly and Murphy have fostered a friendship over the past year, and have traveled across the U.S. on their tour “Why Gridlock Rules Washington and How We Can Solve the Crisis.”
Jolly frequently appears on cable news as a moderate Republican commentator.
He has challenged the GOP on multiple occasions, recently arguing that Americans must flip the House to a Democratic majority if they want Congress to address gun control.
“And so if this is the issue that defines your ideology as a voter, there are two things I would suggest tonight. First, flip the House. Flip the House,” Jolly said. “Republicans are not going to do a single thing after this shooting we saw today. But I would also offer to Democrats, work for incremental wins.”
