Earlier today, former Orlando Police Chief Val Demings announced that she would be dropping out of the Orange County mayoral race.
In a statement released by her campaign, Demings said, "I am humbled by and grateful for the support I have received from every corner of our county. After careful analysis I have determined that this is just not the right race at this time."
As of right now, only two other candidates have filed to run against current Mayor Teresa Jacobs: Christopher Barros and Dunel Cadely.
