On Wednesday, America Rising tweeted footage of Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) being approached by someone who asks multiple times if she knows the price of gasoline in her state.
Rather than directly answer the question, the congresswoman responded by reciting Psalm 23. “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want,” Demings began. She also recited Psalm 37, “fret not thyself because of evil doers, for they shall soon be cut off and shall wither like the grass.”
In Florida, according to AAA, gas prices are at an average of $4.767 per gallon. It has been higher in the state, as Demings has acknowledged, though she went with President Joe Biden’s talking points of blaming oil companies.
Rep. Demings is running against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for the closely-watched U.S. Senate seat out of Florida. While she still has to win her primary, Demings is largely considered the front-runner. Prognosticators consider the race to favor Rubio.
Demings has supported and continues to support Biden’s tapping into the strategic oil reserve, something he continues to do, despite how it won’t actually ease gas prices. The White House does not have an answer when it comes to how long Biden will keep doing so.
While Rep. Demings voted for the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act, claiming that it will “bring down gas prices,” critics say that the bill won’t actually provide relief.
