Puerto Rico's current resident commissioner, Luis Fortuno, will face Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila in the commonwealth's Nov. 4 general election after beating out rival Sen. Pedro Rossello as the New Progressive Party's candidate for governor in Sunday's primary election.

Joining Fortuno on the NPP ticket is Pedro Pierluisi, former secretary of justice, who is seeking to follow Fortuno as the next resident commissioner, Puerto Rico's sole congressional representative. Acevedo Vila is the incumbent on the Popular Democratic Party ticket, with Alfredo Salazar, the former acting president of the Government Development Bank for Puerto Rico, seeking to gain the congressional seat for the party.
