Clinton projected to win Puerto Rico

Just after the polls closed in the commonwealth, the networks called the Democratic primary there for Hillary Clinton, and it seems as if she'll win by a wide margin.

Puerto Rico's polling places closed at 3 p.m. EDT, and as soon as they did the networks were ready to call the commonwealth's Democratic primary, projecting Hillary Clinton as the winner there.

Clinton is expected to win by a "wide margin" according to exit polls done by CNN, the network's Wolf Blitzer said. However, MSNBC says turnout has been low, and -- as I discussed in my previous post -- turnout is key for Clinton today.

A total of 55 pledged delegates are at stake.
