Rubio raised $810,000 for quarter



Sen. Marco Rubio raised $809,883 for the third quarter, FEC records show. That's down from the $1.6 million he posted last quarter but still a sizable haul this far from re-election.

About $572,000 came from individuals with many U.S. states represented: TN, CA, NH, AZ, MO, SC, PA, VA, GA, NC, TX, IL, FL ... to name a few. He got money from PACs and also contributions given to a joint committee he maintains with the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Rubio spent $359,000 in the third quarter, mostly on direct mail, list acquisition and consulting. He has $1.03 million cash on hand.

Rubio also has a PAC, Reclaim America, which has been raising money. But details will likely not be available until the start of next year.
