American presidential front-runners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have scored solid wins in New York’s primary.
Clinton told supporters, “The race for the nomination is in the home stretch, and victory is in sight.”
With her win in New York’s primary last night, Clinton picked up at least 135 of the 247 Democratic delegates at stake.
Clinton’s rival, Bernie Sanders, gained at least 104 delegates.
Republican front-runner Donald Trump has racked up enough delegates to make it mathematically impossible for Ted Cruz to claim the Republican nomination before the summer convention.
Trump captured 60 per cent of the vote in his home state and will take 89 of New York’s 95 GOP delegates at stake.
Trump says his campaign is “really rocking” and there’s not “much of a race anymore”, still, his political strength has left some Republicans concerned that his nomination could cause division within the party.
