ALBANY, N.Y. — 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.
