Luis Guillermo Fortuño Burset (born October 31, 1960) was the 10th elected governor of the United States Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. He served from January 2009 to January 2013. Luis Fortuño is a Puerto Rico Statehood supporter and member of the Puerto Rico's pro-statehood New Progressive Party (PNP) and the United States's Republican Party.

In the 2008 Puerto Rico elections, Fortuño won by an 11% margin against then liberal governor Anibal Acevedo Vila, who was charged for corruption.

Puerto Rican leftists condemned Fortuño for firing 30,000 public workers and for proposing a gas pipeline. The island's debt was high as in 2001-2008 the island was governed by the liberal Popular Democratic Party (PPD), who they caused the island's debt crisis.

In 2012, Fortuño lost his reelection by PPD At-Large Puerto Rico senator Alejandro Garcia Padilla, who he was only won by 0.72% margin against Fortuño.

In 2016, Fortuño endorsed Marco Rubio for President of the United States of America, and claimed that Donald Trump doesn't represent the conservative movement of the Republican Party.[1][2]
