    Survey of Puerto Ricans in Florida finds many plan to stay, language barrier a top challenge:

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...705-story.html

    Hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans fled the island for the mainland, the overwhelming majority to Florida, 2 to 1 over the combined number to NY, NJ & PA.

    This does not bode well for the 2018 elections and all future elections.

    Florida is so not lucky. Of course they'd rather come here than to NJ. They shouldn't affect the results in the Panhandle, probably more of a factor in the Miami area. I don't see many people from PR up here near FloriBama. It's probably too cold in the winter here and too many military.

    Puerto Rico is totally corrupt. They are right now stalling on paying back a huge loan to USDA--our taxpayer dollars. They want the government to just write it off.

    The bigger impact could be in statewide races: Governor, Senator and President.

    PS I always thought it was called LA (lower Alabama).

    They're American citizens. They can move to the mainland if they want to.
