Donald Trump

Presidential Primary Hits New York

I grew up in New York. In the SECOND biggest city in New York state -- Buffalo.

Let's do a quick Q and A of questions I often get.

Q- Did you go to New York City all of the time?
A- No, it's 8 hours away

Q- How did you deal with the snow?
A- Like you deal with extreme heat. You deal with it and stay inside.

The there is always this when I say I am cold.

Q- How can you be cold? You are from Buffalo.
A- Buffalonians are not born with a layer of Under Armor.

So what does this have to do with politics? Well, not only am I from Buffalo, I worked there, too. And I don't ever remember a presidential primary being this significant.

Rarely have candidates spent so much time in New York in a primary. Two candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, live there. Oh, and it's delegate rich.

Trump is poised for a big night. He is way ahead in the polls. If he wins more than 50 percent of the vote he gets all the delegates -- all 95.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has some momentum heading into this. He swept the delegates in Wyoming, but Cruz is clearly thinking beyond New York spending part of Monday in Maryland.

There are 247 delegates for Democrats. Hillary Clinton is up in the polls while U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) has won primary contests leading up to this, so it's a big night for both candidates.

So Tuesday night, all eyes on New York -- including mine from North Texas. I'll be tweeting and we will wrap it up for you at 10 p.m. on NBC 5.
