Puerto Ricans seen as key in Florida vote

Growing Puerto Rican population seen as an example of importance of Latino vote in the swing state.

    In Florida, which has gone twice for a Democratic candidate and twice for a Republican in the last four presidential election cycles, the growing Latino population could be the deciding factor for either candidate.

    Though Miami is known as the home of a large Cuban population who tend to vote Republican, Osceola county just south of Orlando is seeing a rapidly politicised Puerto Rican population.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from Kissimmee on what both parties are doing to entice the Latino electorate, who comprise nearly half of the county's population.
