Clinton Takes Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton has notched a 2-1 win over Barack Obama in today's Puerto Rico primary. Clinton has won nearly 70 percent of the vote there.

She told cheering supporters that by the time the primary season wraps up Tuesday in Montana and South Dakota she'll have more combined votes than her rival.

And with a message to uncommitted superdelegates she asked, "Which candidate best represents the will of the people who voted in this historic election?"

Obama gained 16 delegates, leaving him 48 short of the number needed to clinch the nomination.

Campaigning in South Dakota, Obama praised Clinton calling her an outstanding public servant "who is going to be a great asset when we go into November."
