Ricardo Rossello, the Governor of Puerto Rico, talks to CNBC's Leslie Picker about the U.S. Territory's upcoming vote on statehood. Rossello talks about the push to become the 51st state ahead of the island's fifth plebiscite vote on Sunday, the status of negotiations with the island’s bondholders after filing for the largest ever US municipal bankruptcy in May, and the “new paradigm” of having the island’s finances overseen by the federally appointed 7 member oversight board.
