Rubio PAC plays up victim role as it seeks donations



Sen. Marco Rubio is facing more scrutiny as he rises in Washington. His allies see view it as a coordinated attack, and today, in a fundraising appeal for his PAC, Rubio plays that up.

"Everyone from President Obama's Press Secretary, to Senator Harry Reid, to Obama's liberal campaign machines funded with millions of special interest dollars have put Marco at the top of their enemies list," reads the solicitation.

"Marco makes President Obama and his liberal allies nervous because they know he's different. He's not like the other typical politicians in Washington who can be bought or bullied. Marco doesn't fight for ideas to serve the leadership of his party or to score petty political points. Marco fights for the things he believes in, no matter how tough or unpopular they might be. And Marco will keep fighting for these principles, no matter what President Obama or his billion-dollar attack machine throws at him.

"But he can't do it alone. Marco needs your help. Your contributions will help him stand up, hit back, and keep fighting for the limited government principles that are needed to save America. Please contribute today to our Fight Back Fund. Your contribution will make a real difference in helping Marco build the resources he needs to keep fighting."
