SCF Statement on Florida Senate Race
Greenville, SC — Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina), chairman of the Senate Conservatives Fund, made the following statement regarding the election of Marco Rubio to the U.S. Senate in Florida.
"I want to thank the voters in Florida for electing a true champion for freedom today. Marco knows that America is exceptional and he's passionate about the principles of freedom that are the backbone of our nation. I was honored to support Marco's campaign in the primary when the Washington establishment opposed him and even laughed at his chances. Now the people of Florida get to have the last laugh as they send an outstanding leader to represent them in Washington."
SCF invested $589,507 in this race and Senator DeMint transferred $250,000 from his re-election campaign to the Florida GOP Victory committee.
The Senate Conservatives Fund is a political action committee dedicated to electing true conservatives to the United States Senate. SCF invested over $5.6 million in conservative candidates during the 2009-2010 election cycle.
