Rubio discloses fundraising efforts



House Speaker Marco Rubio, who was told earlier by a House lawyer that he did not have to disclose names of people who have contributed to his fundraising concerns, released the list this morning.

Most of the money is for Floridians for Property Tax Reform, one of the groups pushing the 1.35 percent tax cap. He got $175,000 from Norman Braman, a Miami car dealer who owned the Philadelphia Eagles, $100,000 from the Florida Association of Realtors, and $50,000 from private prison operator The Geo Group.
