Former Secretary of State Luis Rivera Marín is said to have been in line to occupy Rosselló's chair, but he had more than a dozen officials resigning after the leaked interview.

Vazquez was next in line and the governor's chair fell on her lap.

Her comments are because Puerto Ricans demanded that she resign from her position in the midst of the political crisis on the island.
