Primary results, the Donald puts up cash against Gillibrand, glowing hot fork torture, Van Dyck headed for sale


Hillary Clinton got the most votes in yesterday's New York Democratic presidential primary. While the total vote count is important, the number of delegates won is even more so. The Democrats make figuring that number a little difficult, and the breakdown of how New York delegates will be allocated to Hillary and Barack Obama is still to be determined. As for the Republicans, John McCain won big and the GOP keeps things simple -- winner pretty much takes all. [NYT]

It seems that a lot of the area's prominent business people backed Rudy Giuliani, who didn't even make it this far in the race for the Republican nomination. [Business Review]

And don't forget about Congressional elections. New York's 20th district is sure to get a lot of attention. Republicans are already lining up to take on Kirsten Gillibrand. Donald Trump has even thrown some money behind one of the potential challengers. Gillibrand has raised the most money so far, though -- some of it coming from the Zagats (of guide fame).
