Fanjul family to host Marco Rubio fundraiser in West Palm Beach


Rubio invite
A series of Florida fundraising receptions to benefit U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio's 2016 presidential bid kick off Friday with a West Palm Beach luncheon that features deep-pocketed donors.

The event will be headlined by two generations of the Fanjul family, the Cuban-American sugar barons, and also include GOP fundraiser Gay Gaines, an early backer of Rubio's 2010 Senate bid.

Also listed as part of "host committee" are former Florida House Majority Leader Adam Hasner, who attended Rubio's campaign launch in Miami last week; former Palm Beach Town Councilman Bill Diamond and former Mitt Romney fundraisers Darlene and Jerry Jordan, among others.
