Cozen O’Connor: Jim Schultz Analyzes the New York Primary on NBC10 News

Jim Schultz Analyzes the New York Primary on NBC10 News

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Jim Schultz, chair of Cozen O'Connor's Government Law & Regulatory Affairs practice, discusses the New York primary on NBC10 news. Jim explains that New York is a, "make or break moment" for Donald Trump because, "New York is delegate rich. There are 95 delegates on the line and if he gets better than 50 percent of the votes, a lot of those are winner-take-all. If he gets below 50 percent, they're proportional. If he gets into a situation where he has less than 50 percent, he's going to have a hard time going forward. But if he gets that magical 50 percent in New York, he's probably looking at a floor of 80 delegates and a ton of momentum going into the Northeast states, where Pennsylvania is going to be the battleground." As the Republican National Convention approaches, Jim adds that if Trump enters the convention without the 1,237 needed to claim the nomination, his nomination will be in jeopardy.
