Del. Michael San Nicolas flew to Puerto Rico over the weekend on his first "fact finding" mission as a member of the U.S. Congress.

San Nicolas was joined by "dozens" of his colleagues, according to a post on the Guam delegate's Facebook page.

During his visit, San Nicolas met Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló and posed for a picture with him on the balcony of the Governor's Palace La Fortaleza in San Juan.


"I told him 'Governor, your brothers and sisters of the Territory of Guam are here to stand with Puerto Rico,'" wrote the delegate in his post.

San Nicolas said the goal of the trip was "to get answers for the lack of federal support" for the territory and its recovery efforts following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in September 2017.

"We help them. They help us. We all help each other," he wrote.

Trip sponsored by PAC

The trip was sponsored by Bold PAC, a political action committee run by Democratic California Rep. Tony Cárdenas.


Bold PAC is "the fastest growing democratic political action committee," according to the group's website.

The PAC defines itself as being "dedicated to increasing the diversity of our leadership in the House and Senate" and "a champion of progressive democrats fighting for change."

According to CBS News, the Puerto Rico trip was "the largest congressional delegation to ever visit the island."
