Rubio raised $1.1 million in last quarter



Sen. Marco Rubio raised $1.1 million for his re-election campaign and his PAC in the last quarter, an aide reported today.

That brings his total 2013 haul to an impressive $8 million.

Terry Sullivan said Rubio has $2.3 million cash on hand for the 2016 re-elect and $307,000 cash in the bank for Reclaim America PAC.
