Donald Trump basked in his New York primary victory from Trump Tower on Tuesday night, declaring that the GOP nominating process is all but over.
“We don’t have much of a race anymore,” Trump said. Sen. Cruz is just about mathematically eliminated.”
Trump is poised to take a strong majority of New York’s 95 delegates on Tuesday night.
Ted Cruz is facing a third-place finish and possibly getting shut out, which will bring him close to being mathematically eliminated from winning the nomination outright. Still, Cruz will soldier on, hoping to block Trump from the 1,237 delegates he needs to avoid a contested convention.
