Donald J. Trump won New York’s Republican primary on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press, trouncing his Republican rivals in his home state and extending his lead in the race for delegates.
Mr. Trump fended off challenges from Gov. John Kasich of Ohio and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, again demonstrating the broad appeal of his populist message with Republican voters. The victory was a crucial one for Mr. Trump, who has seen his delegate lead slip away at state conventions across the country in recent weeks.
But the race will quickly move to the five contests next Tuesday, which could prove crucial as Mr. Trump tries to secure the nomination and his opponents attempt to engineer a contested convention.
There were 95 delegates at stake for Republicans in New York.
