Trump and Clinton Post Wins in New York Primary

"New York turned out to be the state where the presidential front-runners regained their mojo.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump — both globe-trotters who call New York home — were the clear winners in a state primary that for the first time in decades played a key role in the race for the White House.

In initial results Tuesday night, Clinton was beating her Democratic opponent, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, by 58 to 42 percent — a result that followed the most recent polls in the race. It was Clinton's first victory since March 22, when she staged a commanding win in Arizona's primary. Until Tuesday, Sanders had been on a roll, racking up seven wins in several western states as well as Wisconsin.

Trump topped the two remaining Republican candidates with 60 percent of the vote, according to early results: Ohio Gov. John Kasich took 25 percent, while U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas — who made Empire State enemies for disparaging "New York values" in a January debate — pulled in just 15 percent, according to early returns," as reported by the Albany Times Union.
