Rubio Raises More Than $100,000 Off Water Bottle Incident

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has hauled in some serious cash since his water sipping moment Tuesday during the Republican response to the State of the Union.

Reclaim America, Rubio's PAC, has raised more than $100,000 by selling more than 3,450 water bottles since Wednesday, a source close to Rubio confirmed to ABC News. The white water bottles, which bear the name "RUBIO" in bright red letters, come with a minimum donation of $25.

"Send the liberal detractors a message that not only does Marco Rubio inspire you … he hydrates you too," the donation request read.

Late night comedians have spoofed Rubio's water sipping incident throughout the week, and "Saturday Night Live" was the latest to contribute to the line of water break jokes.

Rubio has made light of what some have dubbed his "Watergate" moment, and he told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos Wednesday morning that the incident reminded him that he is not perfect.

"God has a funny way of reminding us we're human," Rubio said on "Good Morning America."
