Looking to “dale mas gasolina” into his campaign, John McCain has reached out to Daddy Yankee for support amongst young Latino voters. This is a very unfamiliar endorsement, but an interesting one. Daddy Yankee spoke out that his support for McCain was the result of his strong stance on immigration among other issues.
I want to throw this out there: do you think this strategy works for McCain?
For one, Daddy Yankee is from Puerto Rico, and is, by default, a statutory U.S. citizen. So, why would he be concerned about immigration? One can argue that since his fan base is largely Latin American, immigration is a big issue for them, and contingently for him.
What do you think?
