Beruff super PAC shows signs of life



A super PAC organized to support Carlos Beruff is ramping up its presence in the race.

New records released Monday show Lets Clean Up Washington spent almost $50,000 on a direct mail supporting Beruff. That is in addition to nearly $52,000 it spent a week before that.

The $100,000 direct mail campaign comes as Beruff's campaign has spent more than $8 million on television ads trying to gain traction against U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

Lets Clean Up Washington has been mostly quiet since it was created in March in support of Beruff's campaign. It raised $180,000 in June, mostly from other land developers in Manatee County where Beruff runs Medallion Home.
