Rubio raises $2.1 million in nine days for Senate campaign

Marco Rubio raised $2.1 million for his Senate campaign in “just nine days,” his campaign announced Friday.

“Thanks to thousands of donations from supporters received between June 22 and June 30, Marco's campaign started July with approximately $2.1 million cash-on-hand,” a release reads.

“Conservative leaders throughout Florida and the nation have coalesced behind Marco. Given their overwhelming show of support and Marco's national fundraising network, the Rubio for Senate campaign has proven to have the necessary resources to quickly put together a successful campaign.”

Democrat Patrick Murphy said Thursday he raised $2.4 milion for the quarter.
