With 83 percent reporting, about 112,000 Boricua voted in the GOP's presidential primary in Puerto Rico. As I noted last night, Mitt Romney took his victory as proof that he had juice with brown people.
"Those people who don't think Latinos will vote for a Republican need to take a look at Puerto Rico," he said.
Of course, 385,000 voted in a meaningless Democratic primary on the island in 2008 (the June primary came after Obama had clinched a majority of pledged delegates). So if we're going to compare the two, well, there's no comparison
Republicans were expecting as many as 400,000 people to vote in the Republican primary in Puerto Rico over the weekend. The trend of underwhelming Republican turnouts continues.
