Washington -- While he has a grand, old Irish surname, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said Tuesday he actually has more “Polish blood.”
That’s why he founded the Senate Polish caucus with Sens. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., and Jim Risch, R-Idaho, just in time for the visit of Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski to Washington.
“When people think ‘Murphy,’ they think Irish, but I actually have more Polish blood than Irish blood,” Murphy said in a statement.
