The Miami Herald‘s Naked Politics broke news this morning about a new round of cash entering the Florida Senate race on behalf of Republican candidate Marco Rubio: “A new political committee with ties to Republican strategist Karl Rove is starting to throw money around, including nearly $250,000 to Republican U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio.”

The committee in question, American Crossroads, is funded “almost entirely by billionaires,” in the words of our sister site The Washington Independent, which has examined the committee’s nationwide efforts at length. In August, TWI reported that American Crossroads plans to spend $10 million on November get-out-the-vote efforts in eight battleground states, including Florida.
