“I don’t think it’s wise to be bringing a lot of people to one location to vote, a lot of people touching one doorknob, a lot of people touching one pen,” Mr. Cuomo said in a news conference. “So we are going to delay that and link it to an election that was previously scheduled on June 23.”
A primary for state legislative and congressional races had already been set for June 23, and now all of the state’s primary elections will be held on the same date, he said.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton
A “recanvass” of the Kentucky Democratic primary results shows that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did, indeed, win the state’s contest according to Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.
“The unofficial winner of Kentucky’s Democratic presidential primary remains Hillary Clinton,” Grimes said at a press conference on Thursday. “The recanvass vote totals which were submitted to my office today will become the official vote totals. The Kentucky Board of Elections will certify on May 31st.”
The recanvass was a review of voting machines and absentee ballots in all 120 of the state’s counties.
In a statement, the Vermont senator said he accepted the results.
“We accept the results in Kentucky. We are very pleased that we split the delegates in a state with a closed primary in which independents cannot vote and where Secretary Clinton defeated Barack Obama by 35 points in 2008,” Sanders said in a statement
According to the Associated Press, it is now mathematically impossible for Sen. Ted Cruz or Gov. John Kasich to get to 1,237 delegates before the Republican convention this summer. Their only path to the nomination is to block Donald Trump and force a contested convention.
