Hillary Clinton Is The Choice Of Puerto Rico Democrats

The Democrats in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico flexed their citizenship muscle by voting in their primary on Sunday (June 5th). That primary was to determine how many of Puerto Rico's delegates will go to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Hillary Clinton came out the big winner by winning a clear majority of the island's votes (and delegates), and the results boost her very close to the delegate count she needs to clinch the nomination.

Here is the result of that primary:


That outcome should net Clinton around 35 to 37 of Puerto Rico's 60 pledged delegates -- putting her only about twenty-something delegates away from clinching the Democratic nomination. Six states choose between Clinton and Sanders on Tuesday (New Jersey, North Dakota, South Dakota, New Mexico, Montana, and California). By late Tuesday night, Clinton should be several hundred delegates over the 2383 she needs for the nomination.
