Keith B. Richburg: Clinton and Trump rewrite the script

U.S. presidential campaign narratives can shift in a New York minute, and that is precisely what happened on April 19, when voters in the Empire State flipped the scripts for both the Republican and Democratic contests.

     First, the Republicans. The bombastic billionaire Donald Trump rolled to a crushing 60% victory in his home state, winning every congressional district except Manhattan and seeming on track to pick up at least 89 of the 95 crucial convention delegates at stake. The win puts Trump back in command of the race he has led from the beginning, and has deflated the "Never Trump" movement which saw New York as its single best chance this month to derail him.
