The Republican Party of Puerto Rico says Buddy Roemer will be the first name on the ballot for the island's March 18 presidential primary.
Roemer won the spot in a lottery overseen by election officials in the U.S. island territory. The second spot goes to Mitt Romney, followed by Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Fred Karger. Rick Santorum has the final spot.
Electoral Commissioner Jose Enrique Melendez announced the ballot placement Monday.
Puerto Ricans cannot vote in the general election but they can vote in primaries. About 400,000 people are expected to cast ballots in the Republican primary to chose 23 delegates, which are awarded proportionally unless one candidate gets 50 percent of the vote.
