Candidates on both sides continue to battle for the Empire State one week away from the New York primary

The latest NBC News/Marist Poll shows Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both ahead in their home state. Clinton is up 14 points from Bernie Sanders.  But you wouldn't know it if you were in front of the Brighton Iceplex this morning.

Sanders will be there at 10 a.m. for a rally--and already voters have formed a line around the building.

On the Republican ticket, Donald Trump has a huge lead-- 33 Points ahead of John Kasich, and 36 points ahead of Ted Cruz. If Trump wins more then 50% of the vote in all 27 congressional districts, he will take all 95 delegates up for grabs.

Donald Trump is in Rome, New York at the Griffiss International Airport for a rally at 4 p.m. He says his last rally in downtown Albany Monday drew 20,000 people, even though the arena can only hold 17,000. Two of Trump's children won't be able to vote for him April 19th, Ivanka and Eric Trump, because they did not enroll in the Republican party ahead of the deadline.

Ted Cruz is in California today and Hillary Clinton in Forida, but all the candidates have barnstorming events in New York before the week is out.
