HORMIGUEROS, Puerto Rico (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton is sounding determined to stay in the Democratic race against Barack Obama, despite the long odds of overtaking him.
Addressing a full congregation in Puerto Rico, Clinton today spoke in measured terms about faith in the face of adversity. She also spoke of her choice to stay in the race despite trailing Obama by nearly 200 delegates. Obama is about 50 delegates short of the number needed to clinch, and Clinton says she will keep going until one of them has enough.
Clinton is campaigning for Puerto Rico's primary on June 1st, which offers 55 pledged delegates to the national Democratic convention. The New York senator is expected to win the contest, thanks partly to her ties to the large Puerto Rican community in her home state.
