Roger Wicker gets $5,000 from Romney’s PAC

Building good will on the Hill for his expected White House run, Mitt Romney is sending more cash to congressional Republicans.

Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC sent $83,500 to 40 members of Congress Tuesday, for a total of $208,000 sent to lawmakers’ campaigns this year.

Two senators made Romney’s list this time: Roger Wicker of Mississippi, who received $5,000, and Marco Rubio of Florida, who got $2,500.

Rubio — a rising national star and a key player in Florida’s critical early primary — is the only one of the 40 recipients who isn’t up for reelection in 2012.
