Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former U.S. president Bill Clinton greet voters after casting their ballots in New York's primary. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former U.S. president Bill Clinton cast their ballots in Chappaqua for New York's primary Tuesday (April 19). After voting, the Clintons greeted a crowd outside of the polling center. Both the Democratic and Republican primaries are expected to be the state's most decisive in decades in the selection of the parties' candidates for November's general election. Former U.S. Secretary of State Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, the national front-runners, were favored to win their respective primaries in the state that both call home. Victories would be a tonic for both candidates following a series of losses. Rival Bernie Sanders needs a strong victory in New York, where 291 delegates to the Democratic convention in July are at stake, if he is to overtake Clinton. With 2,383 delegates needed to secure the Democratic nomination, Clinton has 1,758 to Sanders' 1,076, according to an Associated Press tally. That total includes unpledged superdelegates who are free to back the candidate of their choice but told the news service whom they support.
