• Big primary winners in New York on campaign trail again

    NEW YORK CITY: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump hit the campaign trail Wednesday after their big primary wins in New York, with the Democratic frontrunner locking up the nomination, while the Republican billionaire’s path to victory remains unclear. The routs on their home turf reset the races in their favor, with Clinton putting an end to rival Bernie Sanders’ multi-state winning streak and Trump righting his ship after a series of losses to Ted Cruz that have raised the specter of a brutal battle at a contested convention in July. “The race for the Democratic nomination is in the home stretch and victory is in sight,” Clinton told jubilant supporters late Tuesday in Manhattan. Clinton – the former secretary of state, first lady and senator from New York – widened her already substantial delegate lead by securing 57.9 percent of the vote. Sanders, who was born and raised in Brooklyn but represents Vermont in the US Senate, received 42.1 percent – clearly a letdown for a campaign, which had predicted a strong showing.
