The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) PAC recently announced their endorsement of Congresswoman Val Demings in her bid for the U.S. Senate.

Should she be successful in her efforts, Demings would become the first Black woman to represent the state of Florida in the U.S. Senate

Congressman Gregory Meeks, CBCPAC chair, said, “Val is a proven leader and champion for the American people. She has fought for her constituents of Florida’s 10th congressional district with grace and dignity. We know that Florida needs and deserves a public servant ready to serve the people with truth and honor. This is who she has been for her entire life and it is an honor to support her.”

“With Vice President Harris in the White House, the Senate is missing the needed perspective of a Black woman. Rep. Demings has been a leader within not only the CBC but also the larger Democratic Caucus. She is a proven champion the people of Florida deserve and will represent them with honor and integrity.” CBCPAC Executive Director Yolonda Addison said. 

“When you grow up in the South poor, Black and female, you have to have faith in progress and opportunity,” Demings said. “My father was a janitor and my mother was a maid – [I learned to] never tire of doing good, never tire. I’ve never tired of representing Florida, not for one single moment. I’ve never tired of standing up for what I believe is right. Now I’m running for the United States Senate because of two simple words: never tire.”
