There’s a few names that have been gaining some serious momentum over the last few days, and one of them is the Florida congresswoman.
Demings is a retired law enforcement officer – the former police chief who in her second term in Congress. She was tapped by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be an impeachment manager. And she’s African-American. And a woman.

Dark horse candidacy confirmed.
Demmings yesterday on Morning Joe stated her case:
“If asked, I would be honored to serve alongside Joe Biden and do everything in my power to get this country back on track. At the very least, we ought to be able to have a leader that we can trust. We don’t have that right now.”
Following her ascension to Congress in 2016, Demings has also served on the key Judiciary and Intelligence committees. Her husband, Jerry Demings, also a former law enforcement officer, is the mayor of Orange County, FL.
