The Wall Street Journal quoted Manatt's Bruce Gyory, a senior advisor in the firm's Government and Regulatory Policy practice, for an article about Donald Trump's and Hillary Clinton's hopes for victory in the upcoming New York primary.
Gyory told The Wall Street Journal that while New York City is likely to contribute 50-55% of the primary vote, where Democratic candidates Clinton and Sanders will focus their efforts, the GOP candidates are more likely to spend much of their time in upstate New York.
