LG. Carlos Lopez-Cantera stars in Rick Scott's latest Spanish-language spot


It took a while for Gov. Rick Scott to overcome some internal resistance and realize that Carlos Lopez-Cantera would be his best choice for lieutenant governor, both because of his Tallahassee experience and his Miami roots. Nothing shows the smartness of the pick during this campaign season better than this Spanish-language ad (transcript from the campaign below):

VICE GOBERNADOR CARLOS LOPEZ-CANTERA: Rick Scott le dio frente a la situación.  Corto impuestos 40 veces, reformo el Medicaid para los más necesitados y logro fondos sin precedente para la educación. Liderazgo no es  hacer promesas o lanzar ataques, es cumplir cuando cuenta.  Con Rick Scott, sigamos trabajando.
