New York - Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he is endorsing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for president, but he's not playing a role in the campaign.

While Giuliani has already made his support for Trump known, he told CNN on Tuesday that he hasn't described it as an endorsement because he's not playing a role in the campaign and he's not a surrogate.

Pressed by CNN, Giuliani said: "I endorse Donald Trump, but I'm not part of the campaign."

New Yorkers will head to the polls on Tuesday to vote in the state's crucial primary. Trump was leading his rivals in New York preference polls ahead of Tuesday's primary.

Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton hope to emerge victorious from Tuesday's primaries in New York, contests that offer big delegate hauls and an opportunity for the front-runners to inch closer to their parties' nominations.

Even before the New York results are in, Clinton's campaign is declaring the Democratic race virtually over and warning rival Bernie Sanders that he risked damaging the party's eventual nominee if he keeps up harsh criticism of the former secretary of state.
