New York Primary Results

By: Rachel Stewart

The crucial primary election in New York has finished and the results are in. Donald Trump won for the Republican Party, receiving 89 delegates with John Kasich swooping in for a measly 4 delegates, and Ted Cruz did not take home any. Hillary Clinton won majority for the Democrats. However, just because Clinton won does not mean Sanders went home with as little as the Republican runner-up. Clinton received 139 delegates, and Sanders received 106 delegates, so the race was close.

This was no surprise for Trump, as New York is his home territory. This was also important for Clinton, who hasn’t been doing as well as she hoped in the Midwest and West. Although this primary was important, it technically is still anyone’s game, and we won’t know the candidates for each party for sure until the conventions this summer.
