Rubio’s PAC offers $25 water bottlesby George Bennett | February 14th, 2013
Making the most out of every opportunity — even a nationally televised bout of xerostomia and awkward lunge for a swig of water — Sen. Marco Rubio‘s Reclaim America PAC is offering Rubio water bottles to contributors who give at least $25.
Those who mocked Rubio’s bottle grab were trying to distract from his conservative message, a fundraising appeal launched Wednesday night says.
“Don’t get angry at the liberals who want to bury what Marco said. Laugh at them…Send the liberal detractors a message that not only does Marco Rubio inspire you…He hydrates you too.”
Rubio promoted the bottles on his Twitter feed Wednesday night.
He also tweeted that there’s been an upside to his thirst episode: “Picked up over 13,000 new followers on #twitter since last night! Im going to start drinking #water in the middle of all of my speeches!”
