Trump aims for East Coast sweep in a test of reorganized team

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump greets supporters during a rally in Wilkes-Barre, PennsylvaniaDonald Trump is poised to extend his lead in the Republican presidential race in a string of East Coast primaries on Tuesday, but a complicated contest in Pennsylvania, the day’s biggest prize, will test his recently reorganized campaign.     The state features the sort of complex rules that Trump has repeatedly slammed for being “rigged” and that forced him this month to reshuffle his team to better compete with Ted Cruz, his main rival for the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination for the Nov. 8 election. Before polls opened, Trump kept battering the Republican delegate allocation system. Just 17 of the 71 Republican delegates up for grabs in Pennsylvania on Tuesday are allocated to the candidate who wins its primary.
