'It's Nice to Win the Delegates With the Votes': Trump Wins NY GOP Primary
Donald Trump addressed a crowd of supporters at his headquarters in New York City after a strong win in the state's primary.
"We don't have much of a race anymore," Trump said during a victory rally in the lobby of the Manhattan tower bearing his name.
“Senator Cruz is just about mathematically eliminated,” he said. “We’re really, really rockin’.”
The GOP frontrunner emphasized the importance of winning on the strength of the ballot.
"It's really nice to win the delegates with the votes," Trump said.
"Nobody should be given delegates, which is a ticket to victory, and it's not a fair ticket. And even though we're leading by a lot and we can't be caught--it's impossible to catch us--nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they get those delegates with voters and voting, and that's what's going to happen. And you watch. Because the people aren't going to stand for it. It's a crooked system, it's a system that's rigged, and we're gonna go back to the old way. It's called 'You vote and you win.'"

“Donald Trump has worked very hard in New York,” Carl Cameron reported from Trump Tower minutes before the results.
“There have been robocalls, there’s been door-to-door canvassing. Perhaps more work in his home state than any of the other preceding contests, caucuses and primaries. For Trump tonight, it’s a very big moment.”
