Sen. Marco Rubio Breaks Tooth, Tries Fundraising Off It


Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida cracked his tooth while eating a frozen candy bar on Feb. 10 in Okatie, South Carolina.

“I just bit into a Twix bar and I go, ‘This Twix bar’s got something really hard in it,’” Rubio told reporters on Feb. 11, reports The Wall Street Journal.

“And I go, ‘Oh my gosh, I cracked my tooth,’” Rubio added.

Rubio visited a dentist in South Carolina on Feb. 11 for a temporary fix, but plans to get a permanent replacement from his regular dentist when he returns home to Miami.

The Rubio campaign used the incident in an email donation request to supporters on Feb. 12, notes Joe.My.God.

The donation request recalled the tooth incident and asked, "So, Friend, will you CHIP in to help Marco today?"
