Clinton brings campaign home to New York’s Harlem


NEW YORK: Hillary Clinton brought the presidential race to New York on Wednesday, visiting the his-torically black neighborhood of Harlem to outline a vision of national diversity and to attack Donald Trump. Clinton looked delighted to back in her adopted home state, appealing for votes from the people who “took a chance on me” by electing her to the US Senate in 2000. The former first lady, secretary of state and two-time senator holds a commanding double-digit lead over Bernie Sanders, her challenger for the Democratic nomination in the state’s primary on April 19. The 2016 New York primary is unusual in that it includes three New Yorkers: Clinton facing off against the Brooklyn-born Sanders, now senator of Vermont. On the Republican side, the Queens-born, Manhattan tycoon Trump will try to extend his lead over Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Ohio Governor John Kasich.
