(FOX NEWS) – A day after she launched a much-anticipated 2022 Democratic challenge against Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Rep. Val Demings spotlighted a surge in fundraising.

Sources close to Deming’s campaign said that Orlando’s first female police chief-turned-congresswoman hauled in roughly $1 million in the day after she declared her Senate candidacy.

“The outpouring of support I’ve received in the past few days has been humbling. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Demings tweeted on Friday.

Democrats touted that the fundraising figure was an early sign of Demings’ momentum.

Her campaign on Sunday told Fox News that “the outpouring of support for Val Demings candidacy from across Florida shows that Floridians are ready for a Senator who can take on the tough fights. Marco Rubio doesn’t have the courage to fight for Florida.”
