Scott expected to name new Lt. Gov. soon
Florida Governor Rick Scott is expected to name a new Lieutenant Governor tomorrow morning.
Scott posted a message on his Facebook page saying he will make a "major announcement" regarding the vacant position.
Last March, then-Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll abruptly resigned after she was interviewed by law enforcement authorities about work she once did for a charity.
Prosecutors have said it was a front for a widespread gambling ring.
But so far, she has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
Former State Representative Carlos Lopez Cantera, the tax collector for Miami-Dade County is widely believed to be Scott's choice for Lt. Governor.
