(CNN) – Puerto Rican pop star Ricky Martin said Thursday that he will shake his bon-bon for Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic nomination.
“Whether fighting for better education, universal health care and social well-being, as First Lady and Senator from New York - representing millions of Latinos –she has always fought for what is most important for our families," Martin said.
Clinton said she was honored to earn the Grammy Award winner’s support.
“He is a very important voice in the Latino community and together we will work to improve the lives of families and children across the country,” Clinton said in a statement.
Puerto Rican voters head to the polls Sunday.
It amazes me when this is all over Clinton will have 20million votes maybe even more than Obama yet the news media and Obama supporters think they can throw her under the bus ,unite the party and win the general election !!!! They are all on crack and they need to face the fact that they will have to embrace Clinton if they want to win this election because it will not happen if they continue slamming her all the time !!!!
Call it for Clinton! This is by far the most important endorsement to date! Screw all the Obama delegates, this is where the real power lies!

One insignificant nothing is going to endorse another insignificant nothing. Wow!!!
ricky martin is a very important voice? really? i can remember the last time he had a hit song. more misspeaking, hillary?
LOL! ROTFL! LMAO! Hahahahaha. This is great! Living La Vida Clinton! Clinton wins Puerto Rico by 30 points and reminds us of the nations changing demographics – starts a third party of women, Latinos and other Ricky fans to win the nomination.
Really?!? Ricky Martin?!? Really?!?! Seriously?!!?! Wow, well now I've gone and changed my mind because of that. I mean, he's a washed up singer, of course I am going to listen to him. Only way Obama can get me back on his side is if he gets Vanilla Ice to endorse him. Ice Ice Baby!
A dime is worth more than a primary in PR..They aint voting in the real thing!! Whats the fuss about? And Ricky who??
Ricky Martin is "a very important voice in the Latino community"?
Wow – how out of touch can Clinton possibly get?
Why is this news? I don't care that a "has been", washed up former menudo boy band member endorses Hillary Clinton. Give me a break!
clinton es una loca muy loca, una bruta de mierda come mierda
estos puertoriquenos de mierda son una cagada del gato que no tapo
She is living the CRAZY life that's for sure!
Yeah she was really shocked. Big time BS. She courted this guy for over a month. Lies, Lies, Lies.
Go home Loco Lady
She going to win with or without his help.
Obama president? Not in this lifetime!
A vote for Obama = A vote for McCain
Loca=Crazy...I think the title of this article is rather fitting! LOL. Who cares? I haven't heard the name Ricky Martin in years.
Ricky ??? Who???? Goodness who cares?
After this she can join him in shaking her bon bon too, Chelsea and Bill can join in... what a joke?
And What Has Ricky Done For His PuertoRicans......Please.With All His Of Clout And Money, He Has Not Gone Into The Latino Community To See How Poverty Stricken And Uneducated His People Are.That Why He Supports Hillary.Lot Of Talk No Action.
Go HILLARY You still have a good chance. That is why Peloski is trying to end it. She just dosent want another woman to have a higher job than she has. Her interest is strictly personal, not for the Demoricrat Party. You our the only hope we have left for our country.
Clinton and McCain voted to send 4000 Americans to there death!
THE MEDIA LET THE AMERICAN PUBLIC DOWN BEFORE THE INVASION OF IRAQ. NOW THEY ARE LETING US DOWN AGAIN BY NOT FOCUSING ON THE REAL ISSUE HERE!
1.In my opinion Dick Channey is the main culprit here; he pressured the CIA to come up with false and misleading rational to invade this country! Every time the CIA could not verify that Saddam Hussein had WMD’S, he told those involved that information was not good enough. Dick Channey should resign immediately from the Vice Presidency or Congress should start a formal investigation with hearings just like they did in the Water-Gate investigations.
2.The MEDIA has to remember here a crime was committed pure and simple. We have to remember that over 4000 Americans Solders have died unnecessarily in this conflict. Over 30,000 more have had there lives changed for ever with causalities.
3.Further John McCain, Hillary Clinton as well as the other members of Congress should apologize to the American people for there votes to allow this tragedy to happen. Those in Congress can redeem there creditability with formal hearings and pressuring Dick Channey to resign.
4.Those families that have lost loved ones in this war should compensated for the lost of there loved ones. Further, those that have suffered causalities should be receiving compensation also.
5.The MEDIA should have done substantive investigating pre-invasion of Iraq. Checked the information the White House putting out and verified the sources. The Media today has lost its way. Back in the 60’s, 70’s and even in the 80’s the MEDIA did not back down from White House pressure. Now they are easily intimidated by FOX News, Right Wingers and the current administration!
Way to score some brownie points Hillary.
It's not working.
Ricky Martin is a loser just like bill and hillary clinton.
Only 5 more days and the Clinton Farewell Tour will end.
Way to go, he knows what's right and what works!
Hillary all the way!
If only Ricky Martin was a Superdelegate.
Then I might actually care.
Borack Obama should up the anty with JLo and fam...but that might seem to obvious
Huh? Who is this guy and what is his significance? I guess CNN gives audience to ANY ole clinton supporter that can be found under any ole rock. Wow.
