Dems In Puerto Rico

BAYAMON, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Barack Obama told veterans today that he can't understand why Republican John McCain opposes legislation that would provide college scholarships to people who have served in the U.S. military.

During a visit to Puerto Rico, the Democratic presidential candidate renewed a clash with rival McCain that turned personal after the Senate approved the scholarship bill Thursday.

Only three primaries are left in the battle for the Democratic nomination, and Puerto Rico is holding one of them. After his speech, Obama was headed to a town hall-style meeting with voters in Old San Juan. Rival Hillary Rodham Clinton also had a town-hall event in Puerto Rico scheduled for later today.

Puerto Ricans can vote in party primaries but not in the fall general election.
