I stand corrected he is the 'Great Portuguese Hope' (It was a take-off of the play "The Great White Hope"). Everyone is a bit testy this morning. So he has lied, do you think the rest of them haven't. Gimenez will get a challenger, this is just one contender. If Charlie Crist can run, so can this guy...if he wants to.
The great hope is: He will run against Carlos Gimenez unless Carlos cleans up his act. Carvalho is photogenic, has done budgets, seems nice, wouldn't support Lynda Bell I assume and has no baggage except the affair with the newswoman covering him from the Miami Herald.
Carvalho has been featured on CNN, NBC, and ABC, and in publications such as The New York Times, District Administration Magazine, and The Christian Science Monitor. Watch him on video, he even speaks Creole!!! Well at least enough to say hello. Don't know that he is fluent.
Look at how good he looks in a suit in his glamor shot:
Mayor material? A lot of people think so.
