She's still in it! Clinton wins Texas and Ohio

With the exception of freethinking, woodsy Vermont, Clinton carried all states voting in yesterday's mini-super Tuesday -- she's still in it. Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island gave Clinton's campaign a shot of fuel when it was running on fumes.

If Ohio is the bell weather state for elections, race will be a factor in November. In the hilly southern counties that border Kentucky and West Virginia, Clinton won in the 70 to 77 percent range. Was there crossover voting? Not likely. Clinton scored well in blue collar areas and among church goers. According to CNN exit polls, Ohio voters thought Clinton more likely to win in November.
