The Patrick Murphy campaign will gather to watch election results at the Palm Beach Gardens Marriott tonight.

The congressman plans to greet voters at polling locations in Palm Beach Gardens and West Palm Beach before arriving at the hotel early in the evening.

This race is the top "down ballot" race.

The Murphy camp tweeted out positive news today of 2 polls showing their man with a slight edge. 

However, a Quinnipiac poll out yesterday shows Marco Rubio with a 7 point edge. 

According to Real Clear Politics, the average poll spread about 3.7 percent, just around margin of error.

Murphy, a two term congressman from Palm Beach County, is looking to make the leap to the U.S Senate.
