This November 2014, we will select our next governor of Florida. The candidates are Charlie Crist (www.charliecrist.com ) and Rick Scott (www.rickscottforflorida.com). Both of them have their website in Spanish. Today, October 10, 2014 www.telemundo51.com as well as their stations in Tampa, Orlando, Naples/Ft. Myers and South Florida will be presenting the debate in Spanish at 7:00 p.m. You will also be able to watch it in English at http://www.nbcmiami.com
I was present at the debate today and want to encourage you to watch it. You will be able to find clear differences between both candidates on many topics such as the Cuban Embargo and Medical Marijuana. This is your opportunity listen to both sides and come to a decision of who you would like to vote for. As Hispanics, we can only make educated decisions by being informed and getting involved. It does not matter who you vote for, but please get involved and vote!

I was able to ask Republican candidate and Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera and Democratic Candidate for Lt. Gov. Anette Taddeo why it is important for Hispanics to go out and vote. Please see videos below (Spanish):
