Senator Barack Obama turned his attention to the Caribbean today.
He took part in an event with veterans at the University of Puerto Rico, ahead
of the territory's primary on June First.
Mister Obama said he will work to get proper health care for veterans:
"I refuse to accept that in the United States of America, we can't serve all of
our veterans as well as they're serving us. I refuse to accept that we have to
let veterans go without the care they need or let them fall into the cracks. I
refuse to accept that veterans here in Puerto Rico have been treated with less
priority or receive a lower standard of care than veterans anyplace else, that
is unacceptable and it will change when I am president of the United States of
Rival Hillary Clinton was scheduled to arrive in Puerto Rico today as well.
Of the territory's seven superdelegates, four support Clinton, two are backing
Obama and one is uncommitted.
