Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is launching a political action committee called “Reclaim America,” the latest in a series of steps designed to boost his national profile and tap into his growing star power within the Republican Party, writes Peter Hamby.
The goal of the organization, according to a fundraising email that will be sent to potential donors around the country, is to elect “true conservatives…Republicans who will stand up to Obama, instead of with him.”
And according to his political advisers, that means potentially taking sides in contested Republican Senate primaries nationwide.
“Marco’s one and only goal for Reclaim America is to help build a lasting conservative majority in the Senate,” Rubio adviser Todd Harris told CNN. “We’re not ruling out getting involved in primaries, but our main focus will be electing Republicans and defeating Democrats in the general election.”
