Rick Santorum Tells Puerto Ricans To Speak English, So Mitt Romney Will Win Puerto Rico | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.14.2012 | Politics

Reuters has a story out about Rick Santorum's campaign swing to Puerto Rico, whose upcoming Sunday primary has 20 delegates at stake. On that trip, Santorum suggested that if Puerto Rico wanted to become a state, it would have to adopt English as its official language. He believes that everyone should be in "compliance" with an English language standard, regardless of the fact that no such compliance requirement or enforcement mechanism exists. So, go ahead and add the lion's share of those delegates to Romney's count. With zero precincts reporting, I can now call Puerto Rico for Mitt Romney!
