Obama campaign manager says right Senate candidate could put Florida ‘into play’


Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) says she’s “seriously considering” entering the 2020 Senate race in Florida, and President Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe says it’s “a winning state” with the right candidate. Plouffe says a race between Rep. Demings and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) would “show a real contrast in strength,” adding “Marco Rubio seems afraid of everything; Val Demings seems like she’s afraid of nothing.”
