Slick Willie is coming back to Puerto Rico

Clinton CondomsAs most people know by now, the campaign for the Democratic nomination for President is a historic event. Not just because the winner will be a historic first, but for another unusual reason. For many states, this is the first time in a long time that their vote will actually matter. In many presidential races in the past, the contest has been determined early and the primaries scheduled late in the season have not usually been necessary. So it is with Indiana, who will go to to the polls on May 6th, and Kentucky, who will vote on May 20th. But probably even more unusual and maybe even shocking, even for me, was when the news broke that the territories get to vote in the primaries, even though we don't get to vote in the main elections.

So with 63 delegates on the line, Puerto Rico will hold a primary on June 1st. At this time, I'm not even sure who can vote, where to vote, or when we will know the answers to any of these questions. But what we do know is that both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are both anxious to add those delegates to their numbers, and hopefully put them over the top to cement the nomination. With that in mind, both candidates have announced that they will both be campaigning here. The first to announce a solid date for the campaigning to begin was Hillary Clinton, when it was announced that President Bill Clinton would visit the island on April 6th and 7th to campaign for his wife.

The first public appearance that has been announced for President Clinton is the World Class Speakers program for the Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association (PRMA). On Sunday, April 6th, President Clinton will speak about economic development issues at the Hotel Condado Plaza. Registration begins at 7:00 p.m. and tickets are $164.50 for PRMA members, $214 for for non-members, and $80.25 for students. All of these prices include IVU. For reservations, sponsorship opportunities, and additional informaiton contact (787) 641-4653.
