Obama spends "down time" in Virgin Islands

CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is taking a break from the campaign trail to spend time on the beach in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Neither his campaign nor local officials will say where the Illinois senator is staying, but have confirmed that he is in St. Thomas. Tourists say they spotted him on the beach yesterday.

Obama won the U.S. Virgin Islands caucuses in February, picking up three delegates. Six superdelegates will go to the August national convention; four have backed Clinton and two have endorsed Obama.
