I recently blogged aboot Marco Rubio possibly peaking too soon, and concluded “…if Rubio is still raising ridonkulous money, I think everyone just needs to take a deep breath.” Is $4.5 million in 2Q ridonkulous enough?
From the candidate…
“With each supporter and idea, our campaign continues to prove that Floridians want their next U.S. senator to be a check and balance against Washington’s big spending agenda, while offering a clear, conservative alternative. I continue to be humbled and energized by the outpouring of support we’re receiving from voters who recognize that I’m the only candidate in this race who will go to Washington, stand up to the big spenders in both parties and preserve the limited government principles that have made America exceptional.
“A year ago, many were convinced that a principled campaign against the big spending Obama-Pelosi-Crist-Meek agenda stood no chance in the face of better-funded and more popular opponents. A year later, I’m thankful that our supporters have always understood what the stakes are in this election and have rallied behind us to create this movement. Today’s announcement marks another important grassroots milestone on our way to ensuring our message is heard loud and clear throughout Florida this fall.”
