via Candidates head to the next battle ground — KSN-TV

In politics, it’s all about winning New York next week for the Democrats and the Republicans.

Hillary Clinton has got to win about a third of remaining delegates to clinch the nomination. For Donald Trump it’s a steeper climb at 58 percent. “It’s great to be home. This is home,” exclaimed Trump.

Amid protests, heavy security and thousands of supporters, Donald Trump is making a big splash back home in the Big Apple and calling out Ted Cruz’s comment on ‘New York values.’

“With scorn on his face, with hatred, with hatred of New York. So folks, I think you can forget about him,” said Trump.

“The people of New York know exactly what those values are,” said Cruz.

Cruz visits Brooklyn later today.

“If you want to know what liberal, Democratic values are, follow Donald Trump’s checkbook,” said Cruz.

Hillary Clinton is toning down her criticism of Bernie Sanders.

She barely mentioned him in Pennsylvania last night, reserving her harshest words for Trump.

“When I listen to the rhetoric coming out of Donald Trump’s campaign, it is deeply disturbing,” said Clinton.

But Sanders unleashed his most direct attack on Clinton yet, calling her unqualified for the presidency.

“I don’t think that you are qualified if you get $15 million from Wall Street,” said Sanders.

Clinton’s press secretary tweeted late last night for Sanders to take it back.

New York, home to three candidates, and the next battleground.
