NATIONAL AUDIO DOCUMENTARY: United States Plus One–The Prospect of Puerto Rico as the 51st State, by Craig Edwards.

When HR.2499, the Puerto Rico Democracy Act of 2010 passed the House 223 – 169, it barely gathered a whimper of press. The prospect of America gaining a new state would normally be newsworthy, yet H.R.2499 missed out. Meanwhile, decade-old perceptions of Democratic gerrymandering, and opinions based on the 93 and 98 failed plebiscites re-surfaced.

This 78-Minute Audio Documentary speaks with the participants themselves, and uncovers the story of what could become the most debated plebiscite in American history.
