As the NRSC bails out Marco Rubio’s campaign by helping fund his first TV ad, Rubio took to Fox News last night to complain about being out-raised and out-spent. Rubio even admitted that he’s underperforming, telling viewers that the Florida Senate race will be closer than he thinks it should be.
Marco Rubio: “I need people’s help…We can’t get out-spent and out-raised three to one because we can’t get our story out…Florida is a state that should not in any way have close races like this but we’re going to because they’re raising a lot of money.”
“Voters are tired of Marco Rubio’s record of failing to show up for work and siding with his special interest donors over keeping Floridians safe. After filing a disastrous fundraising report last week, even Rubio knows his campaign is stalling out,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Grant Fox.
Keep in mind: Marco Rubio filed an abysmal fundraising report last week, getting out-raised by nearly $8 million and posting his worst fundraising total in over a year.
