(TCPALM.COM) WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden dropped by a rooftop party for U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy near the Capitol on Thursday, capping a frenzied first day for District 18′s newly sworn-in congressman.

Hours after Murphy officially took office, Biden performed his own ceremonial swearing-in for Murphy. The vice president commended Murphy for ousting outspoken former U.S. Rep. Allen West, a contest that drew more than $30 million combined and grabbed national headlines.

“I’d like to say to all of you, you did the country a favor,” Biden told the crowd.
