One thing Rubio can't hate about Washington: Campaign cash
Marco Rubio may talk down Washington, but establishment Washington's big money will play a key role in his re-election campaign beginning Wednesday.
A fundrasiser that evening features a long list of special interests (PORK PAC!) plus Mitch McConnell and more than two dozen other senators. Cost is $500 to $5,000.
It displays the advantage the incumbent has and how eager colleagues are to retain him.
The newly formed Rubio super PAC, Florida First Project, is also focused on an aggressive fundraising schedule in the early stages of the campaign. We're told there are no plans (at this point) for a dark money group, one of which spent millions in support of Rubio during the presidential campaign.
