Willie Colon for Hillary

Puerto Rican sala legend Willie Colon is backing Hillary Clinton.

While all of the attention has been on Springsteen for Obama, this endorsement actually could have quite a bit of resonance in Puerto Rico, which holds its primary on June 1. Clinton supporters have been talking up her prospects there, and are hopeful that a big win could at least narrow the gap significantly in the popular vote.

"Hillary has been on the side of our families for over 35 years," Colon told the AP.
