Sen. Hillary Clinton may not be Livin La Vida Loca, but she has won Puerto Rico star Ricky Martin’s endorsement.



Here’s the campaign release:

“These elections will have historic repercussions both in the United States and the world. Senator Clinton has always been consistent in her commitment with the needs of the Latino community. 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,” said the 5-time Grammy award winning artist.

“I am honored to have Ricky Martin’s support,” said Senator Clinton. “In addition to his great talent, Ricky is committed to improving the world through his philanthropic work, and I am grateful for his 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.”

Martin joins other figures — including Madonna, Elizabeth Taylor, Eva Longoria, Jack Nicholson, America Ferrera, Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Michael Douglas, Robert Kennedy Jr., Quincy Jones and Magic Johnson, among others — in support of Hillary Clinton.
