Rubio has $900,000 in cash for Senate race



Marco Rubio says he has $900,000 cash on hand for his U.S. Senate bid against Gov. Charlie Crist. The campaign revealed the number today and previously reported $1 million raised in the third quarter. "This is nothing less than a strong statement about the direction people believe our Republican Party, our state and our nation should take," Rubio said.

One problem, though. Crist took in $2.4 million and has $6 million on hand, though not all is for the primary.
