Puerto Rican Leaders Urge PRs in Florida to Vote Obama

La Prensa, news report, Posted: Oct 08, 2008


ORLANDO, Fl Puerto Rican leaders from the New Progressive Party (PNP) and the Popular Democratic Party (PPD) recently met to discuss mobilizing Puerto Rican Americans to vote for presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, reports Spanish language newspaper La Prensa, Florida. Although Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens by birth, if they live in Puerto Rico cannot vote for president, the news report explains. "Here in Orlando we need to excite young people to understand that if we want change, we have to register and vote," asserted PNP Senator Norma Burgos. Puerto Rican Senate President Kenneth McClintock highlighted that Obama is the candidate who has presented the most comprehensive platform on Puerto Rico. There are approximately 360,000 Puerto Ricans eligible voters in the I-4 corridor that runs from Orlando to Tampa, FL.
