this race hillary clinton coming in with this big delegate lead and bernie sanders with the momentum. nothing is going to change sides in a big way. if anything this sets up another six weeks of harsh, intense campaigning. the delegate lead unlikely to be overcome. new york now setting itself up as critical for the remainder of these contests now the two circling each other with light barbs and friendly encounters for so much of this are now setting up a very harsh ending to the campaign. bernie sanders making clear he expects to win the nomination threatening to take this fight all the way to the democratic national convention so for all of the divisions we've seen on the republican side, a very clear indication that there are more divisions to come for the democrats. kendis and diane. >> rick, thank you. turning now to the republicans, all three candidates were under the same roof. >> the presidential hopefuls took turns making their case in new york last night. at the state's gop gala. the event came on the same day
