Whoever wins, Tuesday's New York primaries will be crucial to how the presidential race<span style="color: Red;">*</span>plays out for both parties. On the Republican side, front-runner and poll leader<span style="color: Red;">*</span>Donald Trump is seeking to sweep all 95 delegates to offset recent gains by Ted Cruz. For the Democrats, Hillary Clinton is pushing to slow the momentum of Bernie Sanders, winner in<span style="color: Red;">*</span>seven of the last eight state contests, and expand her roughly 700-delegate lead. The primary is the most significant in New York in decades because it comes earlier in the process, is still competitive on both sides, and includes two New York natives and a transplanted New Yorker.
