Marco Rubio is making a run for a second term in the U.S. Senate — but finds himself $1.9 million in debt from his failed presidential bid, according to his May filings with the Federal Elections Commission.

As the presumptive GOP nominee who knocked him out of the presidential race might say, that’s pretty “yuge.”

LawNews reported that Rubio raised nearly $50 million throughout his campaign, but as of the end of May the figures looked like this:

Net Contributions: $48,224,641
Net Operating Expenditures: $51,893,711

His largest creditor FLS Connect, LLC, a St. Paul, Minnesota-based voter outreach company, to whom his campaign owes $721,031.

Here’s a full lost of creditors of the Marco Rubio for President campaign committee:


Rubio suspended his campaign in March after his defeat to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the Florida primary.

Late last month, Trump urged Rubio to take a stab at retaining his seat in an effort to keep the Senate in GOP hands. Trump offered him encouraging words, “Run Marco!”

The last two polls have Rubio easily defeating his six rivals in the August 30 primary, winning over 57 percent of likely voters in a June 19-20 Vox Populi poll, and 52 percent in a June 10-16 St. Leo University poll.

He would then more than likely face one of two Democratic congressman in the November 8 general election: Either Alan Grayson or Patrick Murphy.
