Donald Trump’s campaign says the candidate will speak from his Trump Tower after the results of the New York primary come in Tuesday night.

“Mr. Trump will be making remarks during his New York Election Night event,” reads a media advisory sent to reporters.

Speaking to reporters Monday in New York City, Trump cited his high poll numbers in the state and took a shot at rival [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore], who once dismissed the businessman for his “New York values.”

“We love this city,” Trump said. “You look at the other folks that are running – they couldn’t care less about New York. We do care about New York. We care about New York a lot. We care about New York values.”

According to polls, Trump is poised to win big in his home state. The Real Clear Politics polling average has Trump at 52.6 percent, Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 22.9 percent and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 17.9 percent.

Ninety-five delegates are up for grabs in the GOP primary in New York.

According to the Associated Press count, Trump leads the delegate race with 744 delegates, Cruz follows with 559 and Kasich has 144.
