ALBANY, N.Y. - Two U.S. senators won the New York presidential primaries Tuesday, Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side and John McCain on the Republican.
With 80 percent of the vote in, Clinton had 57.7 percent of the vote to 39.6 percent for U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, The New York Times reported. The state's 281 Democratic delegates will be split proportionately between the two.
McCain had 50.8 percent of the vote to 28.1 percent for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 11 percent for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and 6.4 percent for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul. The 101 Republican delegates are also to be divided in proportion to the vote.
Far more Democrats turned out than Republicans. With 80 percent of the votes in, Clinton and Obama had about 1.3 million votes between them, while the top four Republican candidates had about 500,000.
