Puerto Ricans have endorsed U.S. statehood for the Caribbean island

Why not? They may as well get in on all of the goodies about to be handed out.

Explain to me what this means. How much closer does this take them to (ugh) statehood?

Do we American citizens have a vote or do we take it in the shorts again?

I think it’s great that they want to be a state, but I’m sorry to hear about Gov. Fortuno. He was one of the good guys and had done a lot to improve the Puerto Rican economy (mostly through privatization and promotion of PR as a business haven for mainland Americans).

Of course, he was heavily opposed by - guess who? - the unions.

PR statehood would mean 2 more blue senators, more blue reps and more blue electoral votes. It also would make us officially bilingual. Obama would follow that by adopting Haiti as #52.
