Incoming Florida House Speaker backs Carlos Lopez-Cantera

Miami Republican Carlos Lopez-Cantera picked up another key endorsement for his U.S. Senate campaign on Thursday, winning the support of incoming House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O'Lakes.

Corcoran joins a list of Lopez-Cantera endorsers that includes Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, current Florida House Speaker Steve Crisafulli and current Senate President Andy Gardiner. He's also picked up endorsements from dozens of other state legislators.

Lopez-Cantera is the only one of five Republicans in the race who has been a state legislator. Lopez-Cantera served 8 years in the Florida House before he was elected to be the Miami-Dade Property Appraiser.
