The Center for Public Integrity, based on data it received from a media tracking company, said Sanders, the Brooklyn native, spent $9 per vote, and Clinton spent about $3.62 a vote.

Trump, who in 2012 praised the then-secretary of state as “terrific”, said at a rally here that although Clinton is “crooked” and has “bad judgment” he believes she is “qualified” to be president.

“I don’t know, I think she’s qualified, I guess”, Trump said before adding that “that doesn’t mean she’s good”. Bernie Sanders for several weeks, long before her comfortable win Tuesday night. We have a mess. “We have probably spent United States dollars 4 trillion in the Middle East”, the Republican front runner said in his speech. Mr. Kasich, Mr. Cruz and Republican Party establishment leaders fearful of Mr. Trump are searching for ways to block the billionaire businessman and force the contest to go to multiple ballots at the convention, where someone other than Mr. Trump could emerge.

At the annual Republican National Convention Spring Meeting in Hollywood Wednesday, Ted Cruz spoke to republican leaders.

Kasich also touted his performance in the NY primary relative to Cruz, calling the Texas senator’s gain’s “pretty anemic”.

“He’s competed much more favorably in Philadelphia, in the Philadelphia suburbs and up in the Lehigh Valley among Republicans who are conservative, moderate voters, not hard-line conservative”, he says.

“At some point, I’m going to be so presidential that you people will be so bored”, he said, predicting that the size of his crowds would dwindle if he dialed back his rhetoric.

“It is not just about me, it has never just been about me”, Sanders told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Thursday. I’ve never introduced myself. They have a right to vote for that agenda. So the agenda that we’re fighting for is attracting millions of people.

“The unbound delegates are going to be able to punch above their weight going to Cleveland and they’re going to be very important”, Weaver said.

His biggest pledged-delegate lead was 114 after the IN and North Carolina primaries on May 6th. The businessman’s win in his home state keeps him on a path to securing the 1,237 delegates he needs, though he’ll have to perform well in the round of primaries in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and DE on Tuesday and in California’s huge contest on June 7. The veteran political operative, who previously worked for the RNC, is tasked with helping Trump play catch-up in the complicated state-by-state nomination process.
