(Newser) – Hillary Clinton brought her campaign back from the brink tonight with primary wins in Texas, Ohio, and Rhode Island, NBC reports. "For everyone who's ever been counted out but refused to be knocked out, this one's for you," she told jubilant supporters in Columbus. Obama won Vermont in the night's first contest and insisted that he would maintain his lead in delegates once full results have been tallied.

 With 99% of the vote counted, Clinton won Ohio's primary 54% to 44% and won Texas' primary 51% to 47%. In Texas' post-primary caucus, Obama has a 4-point lead over Clinton with about a third of the results in. That caucus will award 35% of the state's delegates regardless of the primary result. The Democratic race now goes to the Wyoming caucus this Saturday and the Mississippi primary on Tuesday.
