Fla-Sen: Club for Growth Backs Marco Rubio
Moving ahead with something that political wags had expected for months, the Club for Growth is backing Marco Rubio against Gov. Charlie Crist (R-Fla.) in the contested 2010 primary for Florida’s open U.S. Senate seat.
The Club ended up spending close to $1 million in the just-concluded NY-23 race, with only two months in the field. This is a huge boost for Rubio that confirms sixth months of hype about how it could become the next big stage of the Tea Party-Republican civil war.
