MoneyFrom Press Release


Republican presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has raised $13.2 million in hard dollars and has over $10.25 million in the bank, according to reports to be filed with the Federal Election Commission. The total includes $12 million raised for his presidential campaign and $1.2 million raised by his leadership PAC, a hard-dollar committee that Marco uses to support other candidates.

Rubio for President began July with $9.72 million cash on hand. The Reclaim America PAC has $539,000 cash on hand.

The campaign received donations from all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The median donation is $50 and the campaign’s most frequent donation amount is $25. Rubio’s support was especially strong in his home state of Florida, where more than 12,000 donors contributed a total of $2.2 million to his presidential campaign.

While raising $12 million, the campaign spent only $2.27 million since launching in April. Running a lean campaign, Rubio has traveled to 17 states since April and done over 40 events in the first four early voting states. He has also delivered several major speeches, including his announcement event at Miami’s Freedom Tower, a foreign policy speech in New York City in May, and a speech on innovation in Chicago last week.
