Obama Campaign Redoubles Efforts to Reach Hispanic Voters

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, May 24 — Sen. Barack Obama swept across this island commonwealth Saturday, a visit that had the markings of a coda to a grueling primary campaign. “Hóla, Puerto Rico! How’s everybody doing today?” Obama shouted to a crowd gathered in Old San Juan, before he led dancing supporters along the seaside battlements for a raucous caminata, the traditional candidate parade. “I am thankful, I am grateful. . . . If we do well in Puerto Rico, there is no reason I will not be announcing that I am the Democratic nominee for president of the United States of America!” The expected victory by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) in next Sunday’s primary here is unlikely to shift the dynamic of the Democratic race. But Puerto Rico is emerging as a field test of what has become one of the first orders of business for the Obama campaign in its transition to general-election mode.    Link to complete Washington Post story>>>
