Romney eases to win in sleepy NY GOP primary
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Mitt Romney has easily won New York's
presidential primary and most if not all the state's 95 delegates.
The former governor of neighboring Massachusetts was never
challenged in New York, one of five East Coast states to hold
primaries Tuesday night.
In unofficial results, with 10 of the precincts reporting, The
Associated Press called the race for Romney, who had 56 percent of
the vote to 16 percent each for Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.
His nearest competitor, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum,
stopped campaigning two weeks ago.
Romney faces a taller task in November trying to take the
heavily Democratic New York from President Barack Obama. Registered
Democrats outnumber Republicans by 2-to-1.
