Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump victorious in New York

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Donald Trump won big in his home state of New York, collecting at least 84 of the 95 delegates at stake. John Kasich won at least two delegates and Ted Cruz was in danger of being shut out.
    
Nine delegates were still left to be allocated.
    
Trump won big by getting more than 50 percent of the vote - statewide and in a majority of individual congressional districts. New York awards most of its delegates according to vote totals in individual congressional districts.
    
The win could help put Trump on a path to win the nomination by the end of the primaries on June 7 - if he can keep winning.
    
Hillary Clinton is all but declaring victory in the Democratic primaries, telling raucous supporters in New York that the race for the nomination "is in the home stretch and victory is in sight."
    
Clinton spoke to supporters after her convincing win in her home state against Democratic opponent Bernie Sanders. In a nod to her role as a New York senator a decade ago, she tells supporters they helped prove "once again, there's no place like home."
    
Clinton is reaching out to the supporters of Sanders, telling them she believes "there is much more that unites us than divides us."
    
The former secretary of state was winning by large margins in New York City's five boroughs, which hold more than half the votes in a Democratic primary.
