Nov. 8, 2012
Puerto Rican voters this week backed a ballot measure that endorses U.S. statehood. This is the first time that a majority of Puerto Ricans went with a pro-statehood ballot referendum after three previous tries in the last 45 years.

That type of landmark vote would appear to suggest that statehood is on the horizon, but a number of political and economic realities stand in the way.
