• TRUMP TOWERS IN NY: Not Much Of A Race Anymore?

    Donald J. Trump took a giant step to being the Republican nominee last night by winning New York in a landslide with more than 60% of the vote.

    Primary opponent, Ted Cruz, was haunted by his “New York Values” statement and apparently New Yorker’s made him pay at the ballot box.

    In his victory speech, Trump said,

    We don’t have much of a race anymore…Senator Cruz is just about mathematically eliminated.

    That fact hasn’t kept John Kasich from leaving the race, do you think it will phase Cruz?

    In recent weeks, Cruz has been dominant with a ground game strategy that will position him with delegate power at the convention, should it come to that.

    In New York, Trump added 95 delegates to his total, going in the right direction, but not promising to be enough to make the majority required to win outright.

    The fur is flying as the GOP establishment is in utter chaos and shock at what is happening. It is approaching time that they may have to realize that the “Teflon Don” is the candidate whether they like it or not.

    From The Hill:

    Trump is poised to take a strong majority of New York’s 95 delegates on Tuesday night.

    Cruz is on track for a third-place finish and possibly getting shut out, which would bring him close to being mathematically eliminated from winning the nomination before the Republican National Convention in July. Still, Cruz will soldier on, hoping to block Trump from securing the 1,237 delegates he needs to avoid a contested convention.

    “We’ve won millions more votes than Sen. Cruz, millions and millions more than Gov. [John] Kasich,” Trump said. “We’re really, really rocking and we expect we’ll have an amazing number of weeks.”

    For Trump, Tuesday’s victory ends several weeks of losses to Cruz at party conventions in states including Colorado and Wyoming.

    Trump was routed in those contests, which test a campaign’s organizational strength.

    The GOP front-runner has railed against the process, calling it “rigged” and accusing party leaders of seeking to steal the nomination from him.

    He continued hammering that message on Tuesday night.

    “Nobody should be given delegates, which is a ticket to victory, and it’s not a fair ticket,” Trump said.
