Charlie Crist Names Annette Taddeo-Goldstein as Running Mate
Back in January, Gov. Rick Scott named Miami-Dade Property Appraiser Carlos Lopez-Cantera as his lieutenant governor and eventual reelection running mate. This was seen as a good move at the time to lock down the Hispanic vote.
But on Thursday, Charlie Crist has doubled, tripled, and quadrupled down by announcing that Colombian-American-female-married-to-a-Jewish-man Annette Taddeo-Goldstein will be his running mate.
Taddeo-Goldstein is vice chair of the Democratic Party of Florida and is the first Latino named chairman of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party.
"I'm proud to join Charlie Crist to fight for the people of Florida," she wrote on her Facebook and Twitter pages. "It's an honor and a privilege to be part of this team."
Taddeo-Goldstein, who lives in Pinecrest, is a mother of three, including an 8-year-old daughter with husband to Dr. Eric Goldstein, a clinical psychologist.
According to her bio on her website, she moved to Miami at age 17. She attended the University of North Alabama and graduated in 1992 with a degree in commercial Spanish and a minor in business administration.
In 1995, Taddeo-Goldstein founded LanguageSpeak, a comprehensive language services company that offers translations, conference interpretation, and private tutoring in more than 100 languages.
