Marco Rubio’s PAC Made $119,000 Off His Awkward Water Sip
By: Taylor Berman
Marco Rubio's infamous and awkward sip of water was, as we predicted, the only thing anyone remembered from his State of the Union response. But as it turns out, Rubio's case of dry mouth made for good business. Reclaim America, Rubio's hilariously named political action committee, has sold over 4,000 Rubio water bottles in the past week.
At the reasonable price of $25 (or, if you're feeling generous, even more!) per bottle, the gimmick helped the PAC raise $119,200 as of Monday morning.
"Send the liberal detractors a message that not only does Marco Rubio inspire you... he hydrates you too," reads an enticement for the water bottle on the PAC's website.
