FILE - In this July 17, 2014 file photo, Annette Taddeo-Goldstein, right, talks to reporters during a news conference as former Gov. Charlie Crist listens in Miami. Crist picked former congressional candidate and Miami-Dade County Democratic Party chairwoman Annette Taddeo-Goldstein as his running mate. After years of running few Latinos for statewide posts, Democrats are building a bench that better reflects the support they have in the Hispanic community: more than twice as many Hispanics identify as Democrats than Republicans nationally, according to polls. This year they are showcasing this bench in key states that not only have large Hispanic electorates but enough electoral votes to swing presidential elections. The shift is crucial for a party that often fails to get its Hispanic supporters to the polls. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)APOPKA, Fla. (AP) — The Democratic lieutenant governor candidates from Florida, Texas and Nevada all have colorful biographies: a Colombian-born business executive; a pharmacist-turned-veteran lawmaker; and a juvenile delinquent-turned-lawyer.

Brazilian presidential candidates Dilma Rousseff (R) and Aecio Neves wait for the start of a televised debate in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on October 24, 2014Brazil's leftist President Dilma Rousseff and center-right challenger Aecio Neves wrapped up their campaigns Saturday in the hardest-fought election in the country's recent history. Rousseff, 66, a former guerrilla who was jailed and tortured for fighting Brazil's 1964-1985 dictatorship, spent Saturday morning in her southern stronghold of Porto Alegre, where she was holding a march. Neves, the business-world favorite, was meanwhile in his native state of Minas Gerais in the southeast to pay a visit to the grave of his grandfather Tancredo, a leading figure in the democratic transition who was elected president in 1985 but died before taking office. Rousseff, who was elected Brazil's first woman president in 2010, taking the reins from her popular Workers' Party (PT) mentor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, has had to fight tooth and nail to re-emerge as the front-runner.
