Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll

Jennifer Carroll served in the Florida House before becoming lieutenant governor, and was not a surprise pick when Scott announced her as his running mate in 2010. She'd been on Gov. Charlie Crist's short list as well during his 2006 run, and Crist also interviewed her as a possible choice to go to the U.S. Senate when Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Orlando, decided to retire early.SunSentinel, file
