Interview with Florida Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera
The Florida gubernatorial race took a new turn with Charlie Crist's announcement of local Colombian-American Annette Taddeo-Goldstein as his running mate. Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera considers her a “class act”, but thinks she’ll “have a tough time with this race.”
He joins Helen to discuss the campaign, All Aboard Florida, Medicaid expansion and why he feels former Gov. Crist was “never focused on the job at hand” while in office.
