Multiple sources have told the Times-Union that state Rep. Jennifer Carroll is Rick Scott’s likely choice for lieutenant governor.

Scott supporter Rep. Mike Weinstein, R – Jacksonville, could not confirm that Carroll is the choice, but said she is on a “very short list.”

He said that former Lieutenant Governor Toni Jennings, who served with Jeb Bush’s administration, is also on that list.

Weinstein and others from around the area say that politically, Carroll makes sense as Scott’s running mate.

“I just really think she adds a lot to the ticket. She is African-American, she is a female, and she is really sharp,” said state Sen. Stephen Wise, R – Jacksonville.

Weinsein said her background working the halls of the Legislature makes her a good pick.

“First and foremost, she brings a very good understanding of the legislature,” he said. “The governor runs the executive, but it would be a great advantage if the lieutenant governor know the legislature.”
