The committee, American Crossroads, reported the so-called independent expenditure to the Federal Elections Commission yesterday. The group can't coordinate with the Rubio campaign but can spend as much as it wants. ABC News calls American Crossroads "a pro-Republican" "super PAC" that "has emerged as a powerful force in key U.S. Senate races this election season, dominating groups of its kind in fundraising and spending.... The group is also the most prominent example of the new campaign finance dynamic created in the wake of two Supreme Court decisions earlier this year that lifted some limits on campaign spending and allowed corporations and interest groups to funnel money directly into political campaigns."
