Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio raised $5.7 million during the third fundraising quarter, according to a Federal Election Commission filing released Thursday.
The Florida senator’s campaign haul places him behind this quarter’s heavyweight fundraisers Ben Carson and Jeb Bush, who raised $20 million and $13.4 million, respectively. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz took in more than $12 million this quarter while former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina raised $6.8 million.
The campaign previously indicated Rubio had raised $6 million, though the FEC documents more specifically place that figure at $5.7 million.
