Story on Puerto Rico from Yahoo News:
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Hillary Rodham Clinton cruised toward a largely symbolic victory Sunday in Puerto Rico’s presidential primary, the final act in a weekend of tumult that brought Barack Obama tantalizingly close to the Democratic presidential nomination.
“We’re going to win big here today,” Clinton’s campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe predicted Sunday as Puerto Ricans cast ballots in a race with 55 delegates at stake.
A pre-election poll backed him up, showing Clinton favored by 65 percent of the votes to 35 percent for Obama.
Obama was on track to gain at least 14 delegates, bringing him within 50 of the 2,118 needed for the nomination.
More as it comes in but this victory was expected so it’s not that big of a deal.
