Charlie Crist expected to select Karla Hernandez-Mats as running mate

MIAMI - Charlie Crist is expected to announce he has chosen Karla Hernandez-Mats, the president of the teachers union in Miami, to be his running mate, according to four sources familiar with the decision.

The announcement is slated for 10:30 am on Saturday during what the campaign is advertising as a "Special Event."

The location of the "Special Event" has not yet been released to supporters. But three sources tell CBS Miami it will be at Hialeah Middle School, where Hernandez-Mats worked for more than ten years teaching children with special needs. In 2010 she was the school district's Teacher of the Year.

The Crist campaign said it would not comment on who Crist has selected to be his Lieutenant Governor and encouraged a reporter to show up on Saturday to see.

Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that 20 individuals across Florida are being charged with voting fraud.

DeSantis said most of the voters being charged with fraud are South Florida residents and were in the process of being arrested Thursday. The charges are being lodged n five different judicial districts across the state.

Those targeted are felons convicted of murder or sex offenses who voted in 2020 but were ineligible. Florida passed a constitutional amendment restoring felons voting rights after they served their sentences and paid all fines, fees and restitution.
