WASHINGTON – Sen. Marco Rubio took another step toward his embrace of President Donald Trump by speaking at a ritzy fundraiser for the biggest Trump super PAC.
Rubio spoke at a recent America First Action event at Trump International Hotel here, where guests paid $100,000 to get in and $250,000 for VIP access.
Rubio and others, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and Rep. Kevin McCarthy, gave an "insider pitch about the benefits of Trump's policies," according to a Washington Post story about Trump getting comfortable with the big-money world he once shunned.
Rubio's spokeswoman did not return an inquiry from the Tampa Bay Times.
A well-connected source tells us, "Marco and Don Jr. have a good relationship. He got involved because of that. His remarks were more focused on the successes of the administration that the press doesn't talk about. Nothing dramatic."
