Boston Globe: Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Mass. delegation to Puerto Rico

WASHINGTON - Senator Elizabeth Warren is leading most of Massachusetts' congressional delegation on a trip to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, where the group will tour a children's hospital and shelter Friday.

In a joint statement, the lawmakers said Massachusetts is the "proud home" of 300,000 Puerto Ricans, with thousands more journeying to the state after Hurricane Maria hit.

"We're going to Puerto Rico to see firsthand the devastation on the island and how we can help our fellow citizens along the path to a full recovery. We have not forgotten our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico - they can count on us," read the statement from Senators Warren and Ed Markey, along with Representatives Richard Neal, Jim McGovern, Michael Capuano, Niki Tsongas, Katherine Clark, and Seth Moulton.
