Clinton readies ad challenging Trump on his home turf of NY

Clinton readies ad challenging Trump on his home turf of NY

Hillary Clinton is poised for a winning streak of her own in the Democratic primaries after Bernie Sanders finished Saturday's Wyoming caucuses having won in seven of the past eight voting states.

During a speech at the New York Hall of Science in Queens yesterday, Clinton touted Hillary's work for New York when she served as the state's Senator. Bernie Sanders' string of recent victories could mean the NY primary may be the most important contest yet for the Democrats.

Sanders only recently opened a NY campaign office, and the conventional wisdom is that he has little chance of beating Clinton in NY.

Clinton has avoided directly calling for Sanders to exit the race, saying she's campaigned until the end in 2008 and that she's all for a "good hard contest".

The April 19 NY primary is almost a week away with 291 delegates at stake.

Members of both the Democratic and Republican parties have participated in the #NeverTrump movement against putting Donald Trump in office-but for Republicans, #NeverTrump doesn't necessarily equal rallying behind Ted Cruz. John McCain to gain the White House, he chose Clinton as secretary of state. Both candidates have traded sharp attacks as they've campaigned around NY, which votes next Tuesday.

Affordable Model 3 Is Tesla's Biggest Test Yet
Right now, Tesla sells two vehicles: The Model S sedan, which starts at $71,000, and the Model X SUV, which starts around $80,000. But Tesla and Panasonic are building a massive, $5 billion factory in Nevada which will supply batteries for the Model 3.


During a recent radio interview, Trump took aim at Cruz for comments that the senator made decrying Trump's supposed "New York values" during a Republican debate in January.

Sanders further stressed that his campaign beat expectations and came a long way proving that with such momentum he could be the next Democratic nominee for USA president. Sanders trailed her by 250 pledged delegates, those awarded based on the results of the state nominating contests.

The Fox poll also featured a head-to-head match-up between Ms. Clinton and Mr. Trump, showing that they were tied at 44 percent apiece.

The state, which is overwhelmingly Republican, only awards 14 delegates, meaning Mr Sanders barely puts a dent in Clinton's more than 200-delegate lead. He's leading in the delegate count, but needs to perform better in the upcoming final primaries in order to reach the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the nomination. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. Mr. Trump led in every demographic group Fox broke down - men, women, education level, age and income.

Former NJ Gov. Christine Todd Whitman and Bill Kristol, founder of the Weekly Standard, have both said they'd vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. "I think those issues will tell the American people that in many respects, she may have the experience - no one can argue that - but in terms of her judgment, something is clearly lacking to be president of the United States".
