With three weeks before the August 28 primary, Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera endorses Adam Putnam to replace his running mate Rick Scott as Governor. With Putnam trailing Congressman Ron DeSantis in the polls, Lopez-Cantera’s support could help boost Putnam with Miami-Dade Hispanics.
“As the Lieutenant Governor of Florida, I have and continue to work with Adam Putnam and the rest of our State Cabinet on a regular basis. Without a doubt, there is no candidate seeking the office that is more qualified to be the next Governor of Florida than Adam Putnam,” Lieutenant Governor López-Cantera said. “Adam understands Florida because he lives in Florida. He gets the unique issues facing our state. While other candidates in this race are too busy with their own agenda, Adam is busy with Florida’s Agenda. Our next Governor needs to know the details of Florida better than a they know the details of TV studios in the nation’s swamp.”
Lopez-Cantera has served as Lt. Governor since 2014. Prior to that he served in the Florida House of Representatives and as the elected Miami-Dade County Property Appraiser.
“I’m honored to have the support of Lieutenant Governor Carlos López-Cantera,” Putnam said. “He has worked tirelessly to lead our state alongside Governor Rick Scott, rebuilding our economy and delivering jobs to Floridians.”
Putnam has also received the endorsement of another prominent Cuban-American, former Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart. Diaz-Balart announced his support of Putnam when they recently joined Brigade 2056 members at the Bay of Pigs Museum in Miami.”Our cause has never had a better friend than this man,” Congressman Diaz-Balart said of Adam Putnam.
