The 2020 election for Governor of Puerto Rico includes a record number of candidates: six.
Pedro Pierluisi was the Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico for eight years before Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon. He served as Secretary of Justice for eight years. He was also briefly Governor of Puerto Rico in 2019, before a court decision chose Wanda Vazquez Garced, the current governor. Vazquez and Pierluisi faced off in the primaries last week. Pierluisi prevailed with 58% of the vote.
Pierluisi says that he will focus on equality through statehood and recovery for Puerto Rico.
