Rubio PAC offers official water bottles after viral 'water break'

Sen. Marco Rubio is cashing in on his now infamous "water break" during the Republican Response to the State of the Union address.

Rubio's PAC, Reclaim America, is sending Marco Rubio water bottles to supporters who donate $25 or more to the cause -- urging them to "send liberal detractors a message that not only does Marco Rubio inspire you ... he hydrates you too."

The Florida Republican tweeted to followers a link to purchase the bottle with "RUBIO" in bold red letters on the side with a message, "Quench your thirst for conservative leadership? Order a bottle."

Quickly after the sip that went viral, Rubio made light of the situation by tweeting a photo of the water bottle in question and joking that next time he will use a straw. After picking up thousands of new followers on twitter, he tweeted "I'm going to start drinking #water in the middle of all of my speeches!"

The parched senator brought his own water bottle and stayed hydrated during his "Fox & Friends" interview the morning after "water-gate." He explained that it was a long day and his mouth was really dry after taping the 18-minute Spanish-language response. He said, "I figured I'm better off just taking that water and taking the hit for it than being unable to pronounce my words at the end of it."

The PAC supports candidates "just like him all across the country." Previous beneficiaries have been Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb., and former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass.
