Charlie Crist’s Florida lieutenant governor election talks education

DELAND — About 50 Volusia Democrats crowded into their headquarters Friday evening to meet one of the newest faces of the 2022 Florida election, Karla Hernández-Mats.

Charlie Crist’s running mate, Hernández-Mats is president of United Teachers of Dade since 2016 and a first-generation Miami native of Honduran descent. She gave dozens of hugs, posed for countless photos and told of her humble beginnings before launching into politics.

“I was raised in a very small house, much smaller than this one. Two bedrooms, one bathroom,” she said.
