Clinton, McCain win NY and North Country

NY Senator Hillary Clinton (D) and Arizona Senator John McCain (R) both seized victory in New York state by comfortable margins.

In much of the region, her vote actually topped 70%, with Illinois Senator Barack Obama's best showing (39%) coming in Washington County. In many downstate counties, Clinton's support ran between 50-55%.
