In 2012, Murphy ran for the United States Senate after long-time incumbent Joe Lieberman declared in January 2011 that he would not seek re-election to a fifth term in Congress.

Murphy has been a vocal supporter of the Affordable Care Act in the Senate and has constantly spoken out against Republican attempts to dismantle it, citing the law’s good impact on his constituents on the Senate floor.

Murphy was one of five Democratic senators who signed a letter to President Trump in April 2017 warning that failure “to take immediate action to oppose the lawsuit or direct House Republicans to forego this effort will increase instability in the insurance market, as insurers may choose not to participate in the marketplace in 2018,”

and that they remained concerned that his administration “has still not provided certainty to insurers and consumers that you will protect the ACA in 2018.”
