Puerto Rico is a commonwealth, not a state.  But some members of congress believe it should be a state.  On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Rep. Randy Neugebauer was asked if he would like to see the commonwealth become a state.

“I think that’s a possibility,” Neugebauer said.  “I don’t really have a feeling one way or the other.  If the Puerto Rican people want to do that, there’s a process

for that.  I’m not out there campaigning to make Puerto Rico the 51st state.
