NBC producer Terry Pickard received word that Marco Rubio’s fundraising events in South Carolina next week with Sen. Jim DeMint will be closed to the press.
Rubio spokesperson Alex Burgos confirms the news to First Read. “Since the purpose of next Monday’s South Carolina trip has always been fundraising, the day’s events will be closed press. There will not be any media availabilities,” he said.
Of course, we remember that plenty of fundraising events during the 2008 presidential election were closed to the press.
