Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the Republican and Democratic party frontrunners for US presidential nominations, have won their respective primaries in New York state. Trump easily won his nominating contest on Tuesday, moving closer to capturing enough delegates to clinch the nomination and avoid a contested convention in July.

The billionaire’s big victory in his home state gave him renewed momentum in the Republican race and pushed him closer to the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the nomination. Clinton also won in New York, which she once represented in the US Senate, blunting the momentum of rival Bernie Sanders and taking a big step towards wrapping up the nomination.

The victories for Trump and Clinton, in one of the biggest state nominating contests so far, set both up for strong performances next Tuesday, when they are expected to do well in five other Northeastern state primaries. Trump won in the state where he was born and where the flamboyant mogul built much of his property and entertainment empire. With 90 percent of votes counted, he had 60 per cent.

“We are really, really rocking, and we expect we are going to have an amazing number of weeks,” the candidate, flanked by his family, told supporters at his opulent Trump Tower building, announcing imminent travel to some of the five states holding primaries on April 26.
