ricky martin endorses hillary clinton

Ahead of the Puerto Rico primary this Sunday, the candidates are shoring up their support among Latino voters. (Check out "Podemos con Obama," the new Spanish language viral video supporting Obama.)

Hillary Clinton's campaign has announced the endorsement of Puerto Rican Grammy winner Ricky Martin:
Puerto Rican pop star Ricky Martin endorsed Hillary Clinton this afternoon, just days before the U.S. territory prepares to vote. Martin, who became famous in the mid-90s for his song “Livin’ La Vida Loca,” said in a written statement released by the campaign that Clinton “has always been consistent in her commitment with the needs of the Latino community.”
Latina actresses America Ferrera and Eva Longoria both endorsed Clinton's bid ahead of the Texas primary in March. Other celebrities behind Clinton include Madonna, Elizabeth Taylor, Jack Nicholson, Barbra Streisand, and Elton John.
