Rubio has a new super PAC, which drops ad against Murphy



Marco Rubio has a new super PAC, which is out with a web ad hitting Patrick Miurphy over his resume issues.

Florida First Project will be led by a combination of Marco Rubio campaign and Conservative Solutions PAC veterans. Longtime Marco Rubio strategist Heath Thompson and Rubio pollster Whit Ayres will advise the Super PAC, while Dorinda Moss, who led Rubio’s presidential finance effort, will serve as finance director.  Conservative Solutions PAC veteran Warren Tompkins will direct the Florida First Project, while Conservative Solutions PAC strategist Mark Harris will advise and Jeff Sadosky, who previously served as adviser and spokesperson to Conservative Solutions PAC, will serve in a similar capacity for Florida First Project.

Responds Murphy camp: “The truth is that Patrick was an owner of Coastal Environmental Services, that his company had contracts to clean up oil, and that he’s a licensed CPA. This is nothing more than a desperate attempt to distract from Missing Marco’s disastrous rollout of his Senate campaign."
