Clinton wins R.I.

Hillary Clinton picked up her first campaign victory in weeks, beating rival Barack Obama in Rhode Island, the Associated Press says.

CNN -- which has not yet called the race for Clinton -- is reporting she's ahead of Obama with 53 percent of the vote to his 46 percent.

Exit polls showed Clinton ahead among white voters, Catholics and those over 65.

The bigger states, Ohio and Texas, are still too close to call.
