After immigration push, Rubio sees fundraising spike

Updated at 11:56 a.m. ET at 7/16

(CNN) – While Sen. Marco Rubio's push for comprehensive immigration reform drew some derision from conservatives – particularly his support for a bill that contained a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants – the Florida Republican's fundraising spiked as the measure was debated in Washington.

In the second quarter of 2013, Rubio brought in $3 million - up 31% from his haul in the first three months of the year, according to a source familiar with his financial reports.

2016 watch: Potential contenders take a stand on Supreme Court rulings

(CNN) – With the Supreme Court announcing decisions on two big cases involving same-sex marriage Wednesday, an array of possible 2016 presidential candidates weighed in on the matter, positioning themselves in a highly-charged debate that could continue for years as states begin adapting to changes in the law.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who vetoed a same-sex marriage law in his state last year, said he did not agree with the Supreme Court's decision to strike down a significant section of the Defense of Marriage Act that denies more than a thousand federal benefits to legally married, same-sex couples.
