In Florida, Puerto Rican voters hold the key

While rallying in Florida last month, President Donald Trump made what some may consider an unwonted call to Puerto Ricans. "You better vote for me, Puerto Rico," he vaunted, after falsely claiming he's "the best thing that ever happened to Puerto Rico." Although Puerto Ricans on the island, a US territory since 1898, cannot vote, there are over 850,000 of them who can in the Sunshine State. Boricuas hold 27% of the state's share of the Latino electorate in the 2020 election -- only second to Cubans who represent 29%. And the Trump campaign is very aware. [Source]
