Republican Marco Rubio, Florida’s senior U.S. senator, has been in office for more than a decade. You’d think by now he and his minions would have read, understood and complied with federal campaign fundraising law.
To win a third six-year term, Rubio has raised a total of $34.7 million through June 30, according to records compiled by the Federal Election Commission. His main opponent, Orlando Democrat Congresswoman Valdez “Val” Demings, reports total receipts of just over $43 million during the same period.
Before the Nov. 8 election, some experts predict the total fundraising for both candidates combined could reach a stunning $100 million.
The job of U.S. senator pays $174,000 a year.
