Republican Donald Trump cruises to New York win

Republican front-runner Donald Trump has easily won New York state’s presidential nominating contest, moving closer to capturing enough delegates to win the nomination and avoid a contested convention in July.
Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has also won in New York, which she once represented in the US Senate, blunting the momentum of rival Bernie Sanders and taking a big step toward wrapping up the nomination.
The victories for Trump and Clinton in one of the biggest state nominating contests so far set up both front-runners for strong performances next Tuesday, when they are expected to do well in five other Northeastern state primaries.
