Rep. @Valdemings to @TheView on their candidacy for the US Senate to remove Senator Marco Rubio: "Marco Rubio does not show up."

Representative Demings said:
I served as a law enforcement officer, served as chief of police. I've never run away from a tough fight, and I'm definitely not going to. Let me just say this, Marco Rubio doesn't show up and when he does he doesn't have the courage to fight for Floridians, to fight for the people he is supposed to represent.
Marco Rubio does not have the courage to stand up and fight for the people he represents. When things get a little shaky for him, he's like the wind. No matter how the wind blows, it's cool with him. He's afraid of a tough fight. I'm not. I believe Florida can do better.
Val Demings will bring Marco Rubio the fight he has feared for years. Rubio faces an uphill battle. Rep. Demings will come after the incumbent Senator from Florida, who has watched the White House for years and made public his boredom and aversion to the Senate.
Florida needs a senator who ponders his own political ambitions. Val Demings has the opportunity to give Marco Rubio what he really wants, freedom from the Senate and unlimited time to run for president.
