As 7:53 p.m., PST, MSNBC projected that Hillary Clinton, at 57% (663,922) of the Ohio vote so far, is the winner. Barack Obama had 41% (470,481) of the vote.Earlier tonight, Ohio was "too close to call" for the two democrats, which was expected to be officially called at 1:30 a.m. PST. Obama did win Vermont and Clinton won Rhode Island, which is her first win in a while, but those states aren't the focus.

Earlier tonight, Republican candidate Mike Huckabee officially dropped out of the race.
