Can Marco Rubio Overcome His Money Obstacle?

September 28, 2009

MarcoRubioThe Palm Beach Post has a good analysis of the momentum gains by Marco Rubio and the current financial picture for the race.

Former state House Speaker Marco Rubio appeared to pick up a little momentum last week, but the question plaguing his campaign so far is whether he can put up results. At this point in the game (and just days away from another campaign finance deadline) results = money.

Many believe Rubio needs between $3 million and $4 million to give his underdog campaign a shot in a Republican primary against fellow U.S. Senate candidate Gov. Charlie Crist. Right now, Rubio is on pace to collect about $2 million by the Aug. 24 election.

Meanwhile, Crist hauled in $4 million in less than two months during an aggressive summer fund raising schedule that he’ll carry into the fall.
