New York wins boost Hillary, Trump

Clinton’s win over Bernie Sanders, while narrower, broke a string of victories by the democratic socialist and gave the Democratic front-runner a much-needed lift. Her sweeping victory in the NY primary called into question the durability of Bernie Sanders’ rival campaign and left him with severely limited options for overtaking her.

His interview on NBC airs Sunday.

Clinton is expected to significantly expand her lead next week. Bernie Sanders’ supporters say that they won’t vote for Clinton, that bothers me.

– Based on primaries and caucuses: Clinton leads, 1,428 to 1,151.

The Republican presidential candidate will be at the Crosby High School in Waterbury at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

“He managed to finish second, he’s probably going to finish second in a couple of states next week”, he said. The Texas senator also argued that Americans who vote for Trump may as well put a Hillary bumper sticker on their cars.

“I am still waiting for a clear answer”, he said. Other than New Jersey on June 7, there are no more gimmes, and few opportunities to reap a disproportionate share of delegates even from those states Trump might win.

Cruz spoke in Plainfield, Indiana, to almost 200 people Saturday. Our jobs are being sucked out of our states.

Clinton said “it is nearly embarrassing” to be discussing equal pay for men and women in 2016. That is for local, state and federal officials together to make that determination.

Clinton heard from workers describe their struggles with employers, home foreclosure and low wages.

The three remaining GOP players will face off in five states on 26 April.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage is among GOP delegates headed to the national convention in Cleveland. Sanders could convince them to switch sides between now and the convention’s first ballot.

I prefer Donald Trump because he will stop the influx of undocumented immigrants. “Here’s what’s happening, nobody is going to get enough delegates”, Kasich told a crowd in Annapolis, Maryland. She’s also encouraged the Democratic National Committee to do away with superdelegates in future election cycles.

When being “presidential”, Trump said, “all you do is walk up and talk and leave and everybody falls asleep”.

The map for Sanders was reminiscent of the 2012 presidential election when country was a sea of red for Mitt Romney except for the major city centers that made Barack Obama the victor.

In response to comments from Cruz earlier in the day that Kasich “has no path whatsoever to the nomination”, the OH governor said, “If he’s so sure of that, why is he attacking me all of the time?”

The former secretary of State was ahead by 277 pledged delegates as of Wednesday afternoon, according to The Associated Press’s delegate tracker. Kasich shot back by asking 18-year-old Nick Celico, of Westerly, why he hadn’t gone to community college. He railed against the Republican nominating system, pointing to Louisiana, where he was outmaneuvered by Cruz in the fight for delegates, and Pennsylvania, where the statewide victor gets 17 delegates outright and the rest “are up for grabs”.

“I don’t think the Republicans want to pick somebody who has no appeal to independents and no appeal to conservative Democrats”.

A former reality TV star, Trump has adopted a more measured tone in recent days and appears to be trying to heal wounds inflicted by a campaign that has alarmed many in the Republican establishment. I don’t get as many delegates as some guy that lost.

But does the NY primary signal the end to an often wild and hectic primary season? The other two states voting next week, DE and Maryland, are widely seen as strongholds for Mrs Clinton.

“Today you proved once again there’s no place like home”, Clinton said.
