In A Blow To Sanders' Campaign, Clinton Takes New York

With a win in New York, Hillary Clinton has dealt a major blow to Bernie Sanders' campaign, making it much harder for him to grab the nomination.

Hillary Clinton has won the New York primary. 

It's a vital win for the former secretary of state and one that puts a big dent in her rival's campaign.

Still, Sanders is continuing to inch closer to Clinton in national polls, trailing by an average of 1.4 points. 

And the candidates aren't done with New England just yet. Primaries for Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island will all be held next Tuesday.
