Richly stating it

The most interesting thing that happened in the election this year was that Puerto Rico voted to become a state.

I don’t know enough about the political process of statehood to say what this means. I believe a bill has to be introduced in Congress asking to be admitted to the union. The Republicans are likely to block/prevent this as Puerto Rico would be a Democrat state very reliably.

Still, this is the first time that Puerto Rico has voted affirmative for statehood and we very well could have a 51st state soon.

And if you can’t read Spanish, figure it out. Heh.
