Sen. Menendez was prepared to lead a bipartisan Congressional Delegation Friday with nearly a dozen members of Congress to Puerto Rico, but the White House canceled a pre-approved military transport.  The Senator instead took a commercial flight Thursday evening from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, connecting in Miami, Fla., and arriving in San Juan early Friday morning.  The Senator is scheduled to fly back to New Jersey this evening.
