Hillary Clinton and  Donald Trump, who both have homes in Westchester, are hoping to get primary victories in their home state of New York to gain back some momentum in their respective presidential campaigns.

    46%

A big win on Tuesday, April 19, would help Chappaqua's Clinton, the former secretary of state, bounce back after a stretch of losses to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who most recently prevailed in the Wisconsin Democratic contest, media reports said.

Likewise, winning the Republican primary in New York would let billionaire real estate mogul Trump dust himself off after the outcry over his remarks on abortion and nuclear weapons and after losing decisively to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Tuesday's Wisconsin primary.

Trump owns an estate in Bedford, as well as Trump Tower White Plains and golf clubs in Briarcliff Manor and Hopewell Junction.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Trump and Cruz have already looked to the Empire State as a stepping stone on the path to the White House.

Trump has accused Cruz of actively disliking New Yorkers, while Cruz has gone for the underbelly by inferring that New Yorkers know Trump too well to want to vote for him, The Wall Street Journal story said.

A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that, among likely Republican voters in New York, Trump is ahead with 56 percent; Cruz comes in at 20 percent; and Ohio Gov. John Kasich pulls 19 percent.

The same survey, this time of likely Democratic voters, shows Clinton maintaining a 54 percent lead to Sanders’ 42 percent, The Wall Street Journal story said.
