Get the Facts about Marco's Record

Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate

R. George,

Our campaign had another big week.

Rush Limbaugh called Marco a "down-the-line Reagan conservative," while Newt Gingrich praised him as "a very aggressive, very articulate conservative."

Meanwhile, the Family Research Council and Club for Growth strongly endorsed Marco, while conservatives throughout Florida are tuning into our race and stepping up to support our cause.  They are joining a growing team that includes national conservative leaders like Senators Jim DeMint and Jim Inhofe, Governor Mike Huckabee and former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey.

Just last night, we had another resounding straw poll win in Okaloosa County.  That makes us 13 for 13!  Real voters across the state continue sending the message they want a Senator who will stand up for our common sense values.

At the same time, Governor Crist's campaign is in a bit of a meltdown.

When asked about his support for President Obama's stimulus plan last week, the Governor told a whopper by claiming he hadn't endorsed it.  These news stories sum the week up:

Ft. Myers News-Press: Crist's Lies Won't Help Campaign

FOX 13: Crist Denies Flip-Flopping On Stimulus

Miami Herald: Suddenly, Skies Are Cloudy For Charlie Crist

As we begin a new week, who knows what Governor Crist will say about his support of the Obama Stimulus.  But given all this bad news, we knew it wouldn't be long before the typical attacks and desperate attempts to distort Marco's record started. And they have.

First, it was the anonymous attack website linked back to a long-time Crist advisor.  Now, the press reports that the Crist campaign is being led by an "opposition research meister."  In other words, a person usually charged with digging up dirt on their opponents.

It is becoming increasingly clear that they would rather engage in dirty politics than debate the issues that matter most in Florida and America today.

In response, we have two simple requests:

1.  Stand with Marco and donate today.  Your support will help Marco get his message out all over Florida.

2.  The next time you see a distortion of Marco's record, visit our website, check the facts for yourself, and help us fight back!  You can help by sharing this information with your friends and voicing your opinion on the radio, in newspapers and in the blogosphere.

It's going to be a long campaign. But Marco will continue campaigning from the heart, talking about the right solutions and direction for our country, and discussing why it's important to have a principled check and balance to President Obama's out-of-the-mainstream, liberal agenda.

Please stand with Marco today and stand up for our conservative values.
