Clinton seals New York primary, distances herself from Sanders

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Democratic front-runner has added a feather to her cap, sealing the New York primary in her favor.

Hillary Clinton stationed herself in New York City on Tuesday evening to learn whether or not she would secure enough votes to best her Democratic opponent Bernie Sanders, who had won nine of the last 10 caucuses and primaries.

Clinton put an end to that, securing New York state and padding her lead over Sanders, who had closed the delegate gap considerably.

The victory is attributed largely in part to voters arriving in large numbers to support candidates of their choosing. Clinton made sure to visit all parts of New York State to voice her love for the state she represented as a United States Senator for eight years.

During her trip to Buffalo, Clinton said she wouldn’t forget Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Jamestown or any part of western New York.
