Clinton projected to win Texas primary
by UPI

HOUSTON - Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was the projected winner Tuesday over Barack Obama in the Texas Democratic primary, media reported Wednesday.

The New York senator's win in the Lone Star State followed her wins Tuesday in Rhode Island and Ohio, which was also seen as a pivotal state for Clinton, MSNBC and CNN reported.

With 77 percent of the ballots counted, Clinton had 51 percent of the vote, compared to 47 percent for Obama, the junior senator from Illinois, CNN reported.

The primary results determine how the state's 126 pledged delegates are allocated. Separately, the Texas caucuses select how to divvy 67 more delegates.

Speaking in Ohio before the Texas results were in, Clinton vowed to continue on in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

"For everyone here in Ohio and across America who's been ever been counted out but refused to be knocked out, for everyone who has stumbled but stood right back up, and for everyone who works hard and never gives up -- this one is for you," Clinton said in Columbus.

"You know what they say. As Ohio goes, so goes the nation. Well, this nation's coming back and so is this campaign."
