Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lifts his ballot while voting in Manhattan. For Trump, New York is an opportunity to rebound from a trying stretch for his campaign after a string of losses to Senator Ted Cruz. The biggest question for him heading into Tuesday is whether he captures more than 50 percent of the vote statewide, which would put him in strong position to win all of the state's 95 GOP delegates.
