Clinton ahead in Ohio, Obama in Texas

Hillary Clinton snapped Barack Obama's winning streak by winning the Rhode Island primary, and maintains a commanding lead in Ohio, where she currently has 57 percent of the vote with about 750,000 ballots counted.

That's about 35 percent of the precincts.

Obama remains ahead in Texas, but by a narrowing margin: 50 percent to 48 percent. That's with about 1.3 million ballots counted, or 15 percent of the precincts reporting.

Texas also has caucuses that will award some delegates tonight.
