Less than 7 hours until we know who has won the New York primary. Plenty of time to do some last-minute campaigning.

Donald Trump for example jut tweeted out this new campaign ad, highlighting his story and his New York values.

Kate Phillips, 26, in the Manhattan phone bank for Hillary Clinton. It was her first time volunteering.

Name: Kate Phillips
Borough: Manhattan
I will vote: Hillary Clinton

“I felt it was time [to volunteer]. I have been supporting Hillary since 2008 and now it’s getting tight. It’s getting close with Bernie, the New York Primary is coming up, and I just feel like young people are really vocal about Bernie. Young people aren’t vocal about Hillary – I really don’t understand why, she is a fabulous candidate. So I thought, I should put my money where my mouth is and volunteer.”

“I have been supporting her for a long time. First of all, just a 100%, I really think it’s very importantly to have a woman president, that’s just a fact. Still, I am not going to vote for Carly Fiorina, obviously.”

“Other than that, she is easily the most experienced. There are huge issues abroad, so much shit happening. She has been Secretary of State – in any other election year if she wasn’t a woman, I don’t think it would be an issue at all. I mean she is clearly the most experienced.”

Don’t Forget to Vote, New York

Only one more day before the primary circus moves on. And yes, with all the media craze and constant rallies we had in the last two weeks, it’s about time.

But before that, there is one important thing to do: go and vote!

To be prepared, here are the four most important points from my guide on how to vote in the New York primary.

  • Where do I need to go on Primary Day?
    Use the online Poll Site Locator to find your polling site.
  • What if I am at work and can’t get to vote?
    According to New York election law, you can take up to two hours at the beginning or end of your shift (with pay) to vote if you do not have sufficient time outside of work to vote.The law considers four consecutive hours between your shift and the opening/closing of the polls as sufficient time. If you need to take work off, you need to inform your employer at least two days before the primary.
  • Can I decide spontaneously in which primary I want to vote?
    No. New York State has closed primaries, that means you can vote only in the primary of the party you are registered for.
  • Who can I vote for?
    The Democrats have two candidates on the ballot: Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.The Republicans have six candidates on the ballot, even though some of them have already suspended their campaign: Donald J. Trump, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson and Ted Cruz.
    You can only vote for these listed candidates, in the primary there aren’t any write-ins.

New York Post Endorses Trump

The New York Post endorsed Donald Trump in the Republican Primary – even though they call him a rookie candidate who makes rookie mistakes

“Yet the promise is clearly there in the rookie who is, after all, leading the field as the finals near.

Trump has electrified the public, drawing millions of new voters to the polls and inspiring people who’d given up on ever again having a candidate who’d fight for them.

That’s the work of the Donald Trump we know — a New Yorker, born and bred.”

The New York Times Pizza Test

The New York Times had one of their reporters grade our New York candidates – Sanders, Clinton and Trump – on how New York they are. Seems like Bernie scored the most pizzas, but the debate is still ongoing. Check it out here.

#DemDebate is On

After two – loud, chaotic and political – hours of prepetation, the Brooklyn Debate is finally on. And while Hillary and Bernie get right into it on stage, the spin room is quiet for the first time today.


In fact, it feels like we are all back in high school during a dictation. 

No time to wait for transcripts here. Even NBC’s Andrea Mitchell herself types along meticously. Don’t want to miss anything after all.
