Hillary Clinton Now Has Puerto Rico, Nomination in the Bag

RickyMartin
MTV News is now calling the American Commonwealth of Puerto Rico for Senator Hillary Clinton!

But wait...the election there isn't June 1st, so why are we so confident she'll win? Because Ricky Martin endorsed her, that's why.

See, Puerto Ricans (like Mr. Martin) can vote in party primaries but not in the November elections, since the island is a territory and not a state. We are kind of at a loss on this one, so we will just go straight to the press release:

"These elections will have historic repercussions both in the United States and the world. Senator Clinton has always been consistent in her commitment with the needs of the Latino community. Whether fighting for better education, universal health care and social well-being, as First Lady and Senator from New York -- representing millions of Latinos --she has always fought for what is most important for our families," said the 5-time Grammy award-winning artist.

"I am honored to have Ricky Martin's support," said Senator Clinton. "In addition to his great talent, Ricky is committed to improving the world through his philanthropic work, and I am grateful for his support. He is a very important voice in the Latino community and together we will work to improve the lives of families and children across the country."

Now, we know that Ricky Martin is important to Coldplay, but tell us, Latino members of the MTV community, is he “a very important voice in the Latino community"? Does this endorsement affect your vote?
