Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Win Pivotal NY Primary

Manhattan Manhattan Donald Trump and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton have won the New York primary, galvanizing their bids to win the Republican and Democratic nominations for the White House. US networks called the race for the Republican frontrunner seconds after the polls closed in the country’s fourth most populous state, signaling a crushing victory over his rivals. “I have to say to the people that know me the best — the people of New York — when they give us this kind of a vote it’s just incredible,” the 69-year-old businessman told a victory party at Trump Tower in Manhattan. Trump, whose campaign has appalled the Republican establishment, led on 65.1 per cent to 13.7 per cent for his evangelical rival Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich on 21.2 per cent, with nine per cent of the vote counted CNN said. He told supporters his campaign was going to “get a lot more delegates than anyone projected even in their wildest imagination.” Clinton was declared the winner over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders around 40 minutes after the polls closed.The former first lady and New York senator had 60.5 per cent of the vote, against 39.5 per cent for Sanders, CNN said based on nearly half of precincts reporting. Clinton had banked on victory in her adopted home state to stall the momentum generated by her self-styled democratic socialist rival and get a needed shot in the arm after losing seven out of the eight previous nominating contests.
