WASHINGTON, D.C. (FLV) – U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio was re-elected Tuesday, defeating U.S. Rep. Val Demings in election.

Rubio is a Republican, serving as the senior U.S. Senator of Florida, a seat he has held since 2011. Rubio is a Cuban American from Miami, Florida. He is one of four children of Cuban immigrants who came to America in 1956.

Former President Donald Trump campaigned at the Miami-Dade County Fairgrounds to support Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio on Sunday.

Rubio’s efforts are aimed at bringing back the American dream, bringing good jobs back to America, and making our communities safer. His focal point is ‘fighting for Florida.’

One of Senator Rubio’s highest priorities is ensuring he and his staff are available to help Floridians with whatever federal assistance they may need. Rubio is pro-life and believes that innocent human life is worthy of the protection of U.S. laws.

Rubio also stands firm with protecting the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

From the Paycheck Protection Program and the expanded Child Tax Credit to critical veterans reform and Everglades restoration, Senator Rubio campaigned on getting results. The Center for Effective Law Making ranked Rubio as the most effective Republican senator, and a non-partisan analysis produced by GovTrack ranked Rubio as the second top leader compared to all senators in 2020 and 2019.

Rep. Demings is a Democrat that has represented Florida’s 10th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2017. She works on the House Judiciary, Homeland Security, and Intelligence Committees. She served with the Orlando Police Department and capped off her 27 year career with the department, becoming Orlando’s first female Chief of Police.

Throughout Demings’ campaign she has openly supported abortion rights with no restrictions or limitations. On gun control, she voted to pass a ban on ‘assault weapons.’ The candidates’ campaigns differed tremendously on many other topics such as immigration and healthcare topics.
