Tallahassee, Fla.

Former Florida house majority leader Carlos Lopez-Cantera, (Republican), has been sworn in as Florida’s lieutenant governor in Tallahassee to a position that has no official duties.

Lopez-Cantera was forced to step down from representing Florida’s 113th district in the state legislature due to term limits and in 2012 went on to be elected property appraiser in Miami-Dade County.

The political analyst has been active across social media saying Florida governor Rick Scott could benefit during reelection and hopes to win more Hispanic voters with Lopez-Cantera on his ticket.

Lopez-Contera was born in December 1973 in Madrid Spain and graduated from the University of Miami in 1996 with a Bachelor’s degree in business administration.
