“There’s definitely a temptation in this job to think that the things that are on MSNBC or Fox News are the things that are actually important to people in this country, and in fact, it tends to be kitchen table issues, things that have to do with your daily life that people mostly want to talk to me about,” Murphy said.

He finished the 67-mile trek in East Haven after four days.
