Report: Paul Singer may join Marco Rubio campaign as national finance chair

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Marco Rubio could be getting a little help from a billionaire backer.

The New York Post on Monday reported Paul Singer could be tapped as the national finance chair of Rubio’s presidential bid.

In October, Singer announced he planned to back Rubio in the 2016 presidential election. At the time, Singer told dozens of other donors that Rubio was the only candidate who can “navigate this complex primary process, and still be in the position to defeat” Hillary Clinton in the fall, according to a letter obtained by the New York Times.

Singer has helped raise money for both Rubio’s official campaign and his super PAC. The New York Post reported that Singer has not been involved with the political operation since super PACs can’t coordinate with the campaign.

The New York Post reported that a source close to Singer said his move to the campaign was “not accurate.”
