Rubio to raise bucks in Beverly Hills
One day after pow-wowing with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Sen. Marco Rubio mingles with some political donors with deep pockets at a fundraiser in Beverly Hills, California.
The reception and dinner for the Florida Republican will be held at the famed Beverly Hills Hotel off Sunset Blvd, a source with knowledge of the event confirms to CNN. Tickets for the reception cost $2,600 per person, while $10,000 will allow one to co-host the dinner.
Rubio is up for re-election in 2016 and he's also considered a possible contender for the next GOP presidential nomination. Money raked in at the fundraiser is expected to go towards his re-election bid, as well as his political action committee, Reclaim America.
Thursday's event comes one day Rubio met with Zuckerberg at the Facebook campus in Menlo Park, California. Both men have a common interest in immigration reform.
The social networking magnate recently set up a political advocacy group, FWD.us, which has been pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. And Rubio was one of the ringleaders of a bipartisan group of eight senators who pushed an immigration reform bill through the chamber.
Word of the Beverly Hills fundraiser was first reported by Breitbart News.
