Trump and Clinton win Presidential Primaries in New York
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have won their primaries in New York on Tuesday night.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have won their primaries in New York on Tuesday night.
Trump was widely expected to beat his rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich in Tuesday's election. The precise allocation of delegates from the state won't be determined until the vote results are calculated by congressional district, but Trump is certain to extend his delegate lead and come closer to the 1,237 delegates required to clinch the party's nomination.
Clinton beat out rival Bernie Sanders in Tuesday's election, further extending her lead in the delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination.
Most Democratic primary voters see Clinton as the best candidate to face Donald Trump if he is the Republican nominee in November, and 7 in 10 see her as the most likely eventual nominee.
Before Tuesday, Clinton led Sanders 1,292 to 1,042 in the delegate count. When including superdelegates, the AP count had Clinton at 1,761 and Sanders at 1,073.
On the Republican side, Trump had amassed 756 delegates by Tuesday afternoon, while Cruz had 559 and Kasich had 144.
