Democrat Representative Val Demings is reportedly planning to challenge GOP incumbent Senator Marco Rubio in next year’s election. Demings, who was once considered one of Biden’s top contenders to become his vice president was originally rumored to be considering a challenge to Florida’s popular Governor Ron DeSantis.

Fox News reports:

Demings’ run would give the Democrats a nationally known and high-profile candidate in the race against Rubio, who was first elected to the Senate in the 2010 Tea Party wave. Rubio, who grabbed plenty of national attention during his 2016 GOP presidential run, has already filled his campaign coffers ahead of his 2022 reelection bid.

“Val is an impressive and formidable candidate whose potential entrance would make the race against Rubio highly competitive,” a national Democrat with knowledge of the campaign told Fox News.

But National Republican Senatorial Committee communications director Chris Hartline told Fox News that “Senator Rubio will have a big win no matter who the Democrats throw at him.”

The congresswoman is expected to make her Senate announcement in the coming weeks, a separate source shared with Fox News. Word of Demings’ plans was first reported by Politico.

Demings is a former law enforcement officer who was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2016 and also served as a House Impeachment Manager during former President Trump’s first impeachment trial.

  1. At this point any Socialists Democrat will be defeated in 2022! They are destroying our country!

    1. I’m not to sure about Marco winning so easily. If S1 passes the senate then all election could come into play like what happen in 2020. The democrats found a winning system in 2020 and you can bet they will used that system when they feel they need to win.

  2. She has spent more time trying to impeach our Great President than working for us, sad day to see her run🤣

    1. is he still in rehab? i didn’t believe him but now i know he was all that “cracked up to be”

  3. Well I am all for her running one more chance to get a republican in the house and she can’t beat Rubio

  4. This is really laughable…and Great News, 9 out of 10 people who live in Florida has absolutely no clue who Val Demings is!!! She is an unknown in Florida and only known in her district!!! Even the people in her district dislike her…this is such great news for Florida and Rubio…Should be a landslide victory for Rubio…we’ll get rid of a democrat congress woman…Giving Florida a republican replacement in congress plus Florida gained an additional congress seat based on the last census, so it appears Florida will gain 2 republican seats and Democrats will lose one seat, Demings !!!

    1. What you say could be true today that nobody knows her. The media could change that in a heartbeat. I bet the media could dig up some dirt true or not that they will use against Marco as well.

  5. If you don’t like Rubio or DeSantis it’s your right to run against them. I hope she stands for for something worth a vote. Rubio and DeSantis are liked a lot. All I can say is Good Luck! You don’t stand a chance.

  6. The Superman outfit below is right where it should be…On Donald Trump. He may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound but when it comes to Truth, Justice and the American Way there’s not a piece of kryptonite big enough to slow him down.

  7. Now that is millennialism at it’s finest, she was just sworn into her first term as a representative a few months ago and already she wants to move up to the senate, no need to accomplish anything in your current job to give you the sense that you are ready for more.

    1. Look at what happen in Calif a few years back. How it has changed right in front of our eyes. With the democrats having the media on their side things could change in a moment.

  8. Impeach Joe Biden for incompetence on economics, foreign policy every one in Washington need to be punished for inflation

  9. After leading Pelosi’s Impeachment March ; Val could not get elected dog catcher in the Villages . After breaking her oath of office ; we will welcome having her out of congress .

  10. I was born, raised and still reside in Fl. As long as dominion voting machines are not used in any county in Fl she will only get 40% of the vote or less. Fl has a good election tabulation system as there is a paper ballot trail. Paper ballots are scanned for electronic tabulation purposes but retained for audit purposes and dominion machines are nowhere in sight nor is the internet connected to the machines.

  11. WHO? Already reminds me of Abra? Who, the want ta be governor who lost and her big mouth since she is still whining years later. I hate a fat mouth, loud mouth as they all remind me of Big Mouth Maxi Pad.

  12. The demon(c)rats should throw money at her candidacy…till it hurts, just like they did for that fake-hispanic “pendejo” Beto O’Rourke.🤣
