The Associated Press
San Juan, Puerto Rico - Puerto Rico's nonvoting congressional delegate decisively won the U.S. territory's pro-statehood party nomination for governor in a Sunday primary, putting him in contention for the island's highest post.
Luis Fortuno won nearly 60 percent of his party's vote according to preliminary results, triumphing over powerful former Gov. Pedro Rossello. Complete results are not expected until Monday.
November's general election will pit Fortuno against current Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila, who supports maintaining Puerto Rico's loose commonwealth affiliation with the U.S.
