No Assured Winner in Puerto Rico's Gubernatorial Race Regardless of Courts' Rulings

Every Tom, Dick and Harry -well, let's leave out Tom- seems to take for granted that without the questioned ballots being annulled by the Courts, pro-colonialist Anibal Acevedo-Vila wins the gubernatorial race. I have news for those of you who believe this: the recounts taking place at the ComisiĆ³n Estatal de Elecciones are not showing this to be the case.

So, regardless of what the U.S. Court of Appeals and/or the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico may ultimately rule, pro-statehood candidate and former Governor Pedro Rossello may very well be the winner.
