Val Demings has entered the chat, part 2

Day two of the Val Demings for Senate campaign saw Florida’s Junior Senator Rick Scott take the “no accomplishments” critique to VP Kamala Harris for no discernible reason, and a number of endorsements for Demings. She also took a tough but measured tone while questioning FBI Director Chris Wray, who under questioning from her called the January 6 insurrection “a successful attack.” Meanwhile, Senator Rubio took the stance that the attacks on Dr. Tony Fauci were justified.
