Trump, Clinton look for wins on home turf in New York
NEW YORK- Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton hope to emerge victorious from Tuesday's primaries in New York, contests that offer big delegate hauls and an opportunity for the front-runners to inch closer to their parties' nominations.
Even before the New York results are in, Clinton's campaign is declaring the Democratic race virtually over and warning rival Bernie Sanders that he risked damaging the party's eventual nominee if he keeps up harsh criticism of the former secretary of state.
The lead-up to Tuesday's voting created surreal scenes in New York, a state that hasn't seen competitive primaries in decades. Candidates blanketed every corner of the state, from Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs to the working class enclaves in Buffalo and Syracuse.
