The National Coming Out Party of Republican and pro-statehood Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuño continues. Next stop, Fox News Latino. Fortuño, who has been a Fox News media darling for the past few years, spoke with FNL about Election 2012, his endorsement of Mitt Romney (strange, since he should be thanking President Obama), and other issues pertaining to the his administration.

Here are just some of the comments he made to FNL:

ON THE GOP’S EFFORTS TO CAPTURE THE LATINO VOTE
