Demings and Rubio are the front runners for their parties going into Florida’s primaries.The two already took jabs at one another. “We have been able to reach across the aisle and work where we can when we can. Of course, this former police chief will take that same attitude to the United States Senate, because the people here in this community deserve for us to get something done,” Demings said. “She hasn’t done anything. She’s been in Congress six years. I don’t think she’s ever passed a bill. I think she’s named one post office. Not only have I passed bills, I’ve been ranked the most effective senator by two separate organizations,” Rubio said. Florida’s primary is Aug. 23 and the general is Nov. 8.
