MIAMI, FLA. — Val Demings is campaigning with Karla (Hernández-Mats) Marx, Democrats’ candidate for Lieutenant Governor, today in Apollo Beach.
Demings and Karla Marx share a love of school lockdowns: Demings called reopening schools a “recipe for disaster,” while Marx said “we should have stayed 100 % virtual.” A devastating new study proved that keeping kids out of schools led to “the performance of 9-year-olds in math and reading dropping to the levels from two decades ago.”
When dictator Fidel Castro died, Karla Marx said that “many in Cuba mourn.” Meanwhile, Demings had nothing to say about the plight of the Cuban people until she announced her run for Senate, and since then has proven she can’t be trusted to advocate for the cause of freedom in Cub, fundraising alongside pro-engagement groups.
“Val and Karla are two peas in a radical pod. They’re lockdown libs who appease socialists rather than advocate for Florida values, and they can’t be trusted to fight for freedom. It’s no surprise that Demings has chosen to align herself with another member of the far-left,” said Elizabeth Gregory, communications director for Marco Rubio for Senate.
