A spokesman for Marco Rubio says the Senate hopeful, pictured, never charged a back wax to his Republican Party of Florida credit card.
(CNN) – Florida Senate hopeful Marco Rubio never charged a back wax to his Republican Party of Florida credit card, his campaign spokesman told CNN Tuesday, rebutting Gov. Charlie Crist's curious allegation about his Republican primary rival's grooming habits.
So what exactly did Rubio put on his tab during his $134 visit to an upscale Miami salon when he was Florida House speaker?
Rubio's spokesman Alex Burgos has the details:
"Marco paid $20 for a haircut with a razor on the neck, and he bought some items that went into a silent auction, including gift certificates," he said.
Burgos said the salon in question, Churchill's Barber Shop, sells "travel kits and other gift sets that people usually buy around the holidays as gifts."
