TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - It took decades, but Florida's 42-year-old lieutenant governor has finally had a bar mitzvah -- at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

On a recent trip to Israel with other GOP lieutenant governors to discuss trade and other issues, Carlos Lopez-Cantera was offered a unique opportunity to take part in the Jewish coming of age ceremony usually held for 13-year-olds.
