The presidential candidates are now focused on New York where primaries that will be held next week.

Congressman Austin Scott isn't endorsing anyone.

He believes Donald Trump or Ted Cruz will be the Republican nominee, and he said that he will support whoever gets his party's nomination.

Scott said he's also surprised at the momentum Bernie Sanders has in the Democratic race. 

"You know Mrs. Clinton has got problems with Bernie Sanders giving her a good run for the money on the Democratic side as well," said Scott. "We have a real privilege to live in a democracy and so obviously I'm going to support Mr.Trump or Mr. Cruz which ever one is our nominee as they come through the nomination."

The Republican National Convention will be held in Cleveland and the Democratic National Convention will be in Philadelphia, both will be in July.
