Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.), one of the House managers during the first impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, made it official on Wednesday. She's going after the Senate seat now held by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). ... "We're living in some very tough times. There are a lot of critical issues and I just believe we need bold, courageous leaders to deal with those issues," Demings told me during a phone interview a few hours after launching her Senate bid. "Too many times, Marco Rubio did not show up. But when he did show up, he did not have enough courage to fight for Florida."
