TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Gov. Rick Scott is expected to name Miami-Dade Property Appraiser Carlos Lopez-Cantera as the state's next lieutenant governor.

Scott will make the announcement on Tuesday in Miami, according to two people familiar with matter but who were unauthorized to speak publicly and spoke on a condition of anonymity.

A spokeswoman for Scott refused to confirm the selection of Lopez-Cantera.

Lopez-Cantera, 40, is a former state legislator and an ally of U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

His appointment comes almost 10 months after Jennifer Carroll abruptly resigned after she was interviewed by law-enforcement authorities about work she once did for a charity that prosecutors have said was a front for a widespread gambling ring. She has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
