|Marco Rubio Has a Prayer Request Before November’s Midterms
July 26, 2022
|As the midterm elections draw closer, Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida has a prayer request: that President Joe Biden would campaign against him on his home turf.
In Florida, Rubio is likely to face U.S. Rep. Val Demings — once on Biden’s shortlist to be his vice presidential pick in 2020 — the former Orlando police chief who has jumped to the left since leaving law enforcement to meet radical Democrats’ embrace of anti-cop policies.
Recently, Demings was slated to campaign with — but ended up bailing on — state Rep. Anna Eskamani who has been vocal in her calls to defund the police. Demings also previously called a plan by the City of Minneapolis to dismantle its police department a “very thoughtful” proposal and campaigned about as far away from Florida as she could get in San Francisco with radical defund the police-backing Mayor London Breed in June.
“Val Demings went to Washington and abandoned the men and women who serve in law enforcement, calling Defunding the Police ‘thoughtful’ and violent riots ‘a beautiful sight,’” noted Rubio campaign communications director Elizabeth Gregory of Demings’ anti-law and order statements recently. “In voting with Nancy Pelosi and for Biden’s disastrous agenda 100% of the time, Demings proved she cares more about following the lead of Democrats in Washington than she does fighting for Floridians’ interests.”
Rubio, despite Biden’s claims that he doesn’t support police, has been endorsed by the National Association of Police Organizations along with 55 Florida sheriffs and other Sunshine State law enforcement groups.
