Here is press release just sent out by the Rubio campaign:
Miami, FL – In the run-up to the first anniversary of the February 10 Crist-Obama stimulus rally, Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate today launched a Stimulus Fundraising Bomb with the goal of raising $787,000 in ten days.
With an appeal powered by principle and technology, www.stimulusbomb.com is a vivid call to action for Floridians and others around the country to voice their support for limited government principles and against the failed Crist-Obama stimulus.
“Every day, I am encouraged by the growing support I see for limited government principles throughout Florida and our nation,” said Rubio. “America cannot continue on the current administration’s and Congress’ path of reckless spending and government expansion that began with the $787 billion stimulus. That initial step has only served to embolden Washington Democrats to pursue even more costly and intrusive policies on issues like health care and cap-and-trade.
“Governor Crist was wrong to support this wasteful and failed stimulus policy and has repeatedly put his faith in more spending and bigger government to create jobs. Through this fundraising effort, limited government conservatives throughout Florida and the country can help send a message that our government shouldn’t spend money it doesn’t have and that limited government is what’s made America great and prosperous.”
