Senator Hillary Clinton has revived her presidential campaign with crucial Democratic primary wins in Texas and Ohio Tuesday, while Republican Senator John McCain has secured his party's nomination.
In addition to delegate-rich Texas and Ohio, Clinton won the northeastern state of Rhode Island to finally end rival Barack Obama's string of 12 consecutive wins in state primaries or caucuses. Senator Obama won Vermont Tuesday, the first declared state of the night.
Clinton told supporters in Columbus, Ohio that her fight for the nomination is "going on, going strong, and going all the way."
Obama congratulated Clinton during a speech to supporters in San Antonio, Texas. But he stressed that he continued to lead in delegates, and is on the way to winning the Democratic nomination. After losing the primary Obama holds a slight lead over Clinton in the Texas caucus race.
Meanwhile, President Bush has endorsed Senator McCain. McCain beat former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in all four states Tuesday to clinch the Republican nomination.
