    President Obama made a visit to Puerto Rico on Tuesday, the first official White House trip since Kennedy dropped in on the island in 1961. While Puerto Ricans living in Puerto Rico cannot vote in presidential elections, some say Obama’s trip was part of an effort to woo mainland Latino voters. "When I ran for president, I promised to include Puerto Rico not just on my itinerary, but also in my vision of where our country needs to go,” he said to a crowd at a San Juan airport, “And I am proud to say that we've kept that promise.” Obama also addressed the ongoing question of the country’s status; "When the people of Puerto Rico make a clear decision, my administration will stand by you.” While in town, he made stops at the home of Gov. Luis Fortuno and a local restaurant for a sandwich.
