Charlie Crist has selected Annette Taddeo as his running mate in his campaign for governor.
Taddeo is a Democratic activist from South Florida and founder and CEO of language translation company called LanguageSpeak. She previously ran for a U.S. House seat. She is also vice-chair of the Democratic Party of Florida.
Crist made the announcement Thursday morning in Miami.
"Annette is a remarkable woman and a classic American success story," said Crist. "She will make an excellent lieutenant governor because, as a working mom, she knows Florida families are struggling to pay their bills, raise their kids, and save for retirement -- and because she believes, as I do, that all Floridians deserve a fair shot at success."
"As a working mom and a small businesswoman, I am thrilled to serve with a man who has always fought for Florida's middle class families," said Taddeo. "We deserve a governor who understands the struggle our families and seniors are facing and works every day to make our lives better -- not harder."
