Puerto Rico statehood push faces long odds

June 18, 2017

2017-06-18_6-34-57Puerto Rico’s government made a huge political gamble on mounting a credible campaign for statehood, a proposition that only its most optimistic supporters view as realistic.

Puerto Rican voters overwhelmingly chose statehood in a plebiscite Sunday, but low participation rates and lack of federal support marred its credibility.

Now statehooders are mounting a campaign on the mainland to follow through on Gov. Ricardo Rosselló’s (D) core campaign pledge.

So far, that campaign has mostly fallen on deaf ears in Washington.
