Meanwhile, in Puerto Rico…

Guest post by Scan Pretty amazing that Pat Robertson's network has the best reporting on the Puerto Rico primary that I've seen thus far. But very little about this season has made sense...so whatever. Hillary is making stops in nine Puerto Rico cities on the eve of the election, by the way. Not too shabby. [...]
