TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera finds himself in an awkward situation while talking to reporters about Governor Rick Scott's Democratic Challenger, former Governor Charlie Crist.

Video from the Palm Beach Post shows Lopez-Cantera talking about Crist, saying "When it was time to stand up and make a difference, he left." That's when Crist walked up to the Lt. Governor and said, "Carlos, good to see you, how are you? Say hey to your family."

Tonight on the News at 6, ABC27 Political Contributor Trimmel Gomez discussed that exchange, the Governor's race and the latest from the Florida Legislature, including the bill that would provide tuition for undocumented immigrants that hit a roadblock today in the Florida Legislature.
