Rep. Val Demings Plans To Run For Senate Against Sen. Marco Rubio In 2022
The congresswoman is expected to make an official announcement in a few weeks.
Rubio is a nationally well-known and well-funded official who was once a strong candidate in the 2016 GOP presidential primaries.
The senator is now facing high-profile Democrats for his re-election.
Demings had first entered news headlines during then-president Donald Trump‘s impeachment trial in 2020. She was also short-listed for Biden’s Vice President last summer.
The congresswoman was also a key voice during the George Floyd protests last year.
Other than Demings, Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Florida) is also reportedly considering a Senate run.
