Trump wins Republican presidential primary in New York
Donald Trump triumphed with ease Tuesday in the Republican primary in New York, rebounding from a tough stretch that had strained his path to the GOP nomination and highlighted weaknesses in his campaign.
The margin of Trump’s victory in his home state and the number of delegates he secures will determine the real impact of his win. If he captures more than 50 percent of the vote, he will be in a strong position to win most of New York’s 95 delegates, an impressive haul that will keep him on a narrow path to the nomination.
With the votes still being counted, Trump declared that it was “impossible” for his rivals to catch him.
“We don’t have much of a race anymore,” Trump said during a victory rally in the lobby of the Manhattan tower bearing his name.
