Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has raised more than $100,000 thanks to his water break moment during last week’s GOP response to the State of the Union, according to a report.

Rubio’s political action committee began selling water bottles branded with the Tea Party favorite’s name for contributions of $25 or more. Buzzfeed [2] reports that after a week the effort has sold more than 3,100 water bottles.

The water bottles were an attempt to capitalize on Rubio’s swig of water while delivering the GOP response live last Tuesday.

While speaking to the camera, Rubio paused at one point and grabbed an off-camera water bottle to take a sip. The water break attracted widespread attention on Twitter and on late-night television.

Rubio’s PAC, Reclaim America, quickly put up a “Marco Rubio Water Bottle” for sale.

“Send the liberal detractors a message that not only does Marco Rubio inspire you… he hydrates you too,” said the website selling the bottle.

And his Twitter follower count [3] continues to rise [4].

Talk about turning lemons into lemonade! Way to go, Team Rubio!
