Mayor Michael Bloomberg was among tens of thousands of New Yorkers marching in yesterday's Puerto Rican Day Parade, as were many of the candidates who hope to replace him in Januray.
Many of the mayoral hopefuls took to the Twittersphere to show their committment the Latino community.

One of the candidates left more to the imagination.
It was good to see so many of my fellow Puerto Ricans, & New Yorkers from other nationalities, as I marched in the Puerto Rican Day Parade.— Erick Salgado (@ErickSalgadoNYC) June 10, 2013
While another marched in the parade not as a candidate but as an elected figure.
And despite being one of Twitter's most infamous tweeters, at least one candidate relied on media to capture his moment.
