Rubio hauls in $4M for 2022 Senate reelection in the past three months
Likely Rubio-Demings 2022 Florida showdown could become most expensive Senate race ever
Rubio’s haul shared first with Fox News on Thursday, is more than double the $1.6 million the senator raised during this year’s January-March first quarter.
2022 SENATE SHOWDOWN IN FLORIDA COULD BECOME MOST EXPENSIVE IN HISTORY
Rubio, who was first elected to the Senate in the 2010 Tea Party wave and who grabbed plenty of national attention during his unsuccessful 2016 GOP presidential nomination bid, is gearing up as he runs in the 2022 midterm elections for a third six-year term.
As long as there is voter integrity, Rubio should win. Unfortunately, I have no great hopes for voter integrity . . . the Democrats have perfected the concept of voter fraud.
Rubio’s second-quarter fundraising is more than any GOP Senate incumbent raised during the second quarter of 2019, the similar time period during the previous election cycle, his campaign pointed out. And it’s roughly $1 million more than then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell raised in the second quarter of 2019, during the Republican senator from Kentucky’s successful 2020 reelection campaign.
The senator’s campaign didn’t offer a breakdown of Rubio’s fundraising other than the top-line figure. The senator had $3.9 million cash on hand as of the start of April. Candidates running for federal offices have until July 15 to file their second-quarter reports with the Federal Election Commission.
