Republican front-runner Donald Trump is set to rally supporters Tuesday night in New York City, after what polls project will be a big win for the billionaire businessman in his home state.

Trump leads GOP rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich by big margins in public polling. But his increasingly narrow path to winning the delegates needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination before the July convention makes his margin of victory in New York particularly important on Tuesday. He will win significantly more delegates if he captures an outright majority of the vote.

He is scheduled to rally supporters at 9 p.m. E.T. Watch it live above.
