Puerto Rico to pick governor amid massive financial crisis

The former Spanish colony of Puerto Rico has been a US commonwealth since 1952Voters in Puerto Rico elect a new governor on Tuesday amid a massive economic and financial crisis that has sent thousands packing for the mainland United States. Almost two million voters in the US Caribbean commonwealth will choose a new leader after Puerto Ricans in their thousands streamed off the island besieged by crippling recession and $70 billion in debt — its worst crisis in six decades. Among the six gubernatorial candidates, the favorites are David Bernier of the Popular Democratic Party (PDP), and Ricky Rossello, of the New Progressive Party (PNP), which favors full US statehood instead of the commonwealth status quo.
