Val Demings is a tireless champion for public safety, civil rights, and the American Dream.
Florida has been a heartbreak for Democrats ever since the “loss” in 2000, but if there was ever a candidate who could win statewide, it is the indomitable Val Demings.
Since being elected to the U.S. Congress In 2016, Val Demings swiftly gained a reputation as a tireless champion for public safety, civil rights, and the American Dream. She gained widespread acclaim for her conduct as a deliberative and justice-focused impeachment manager during the first impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.
Sen. Marco Rubio is considered somewhat vulnerable. Earlier this year, a Mason-Dixon poll showed 47% of Florida voters approved of Rubio’s job performance and 42% disapproved. In February, Demings polled within five points of Rubio at 47% for Rubio to 42% for Demings. The race is rated Lean R by Cook.
