COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Hillary Rodham Clinton has finally had a confetti night.

The Democratic presidential hopeful is the winner of the Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island primaries, putting a dent in Barack Obama's delegate lead.

Clinton told supporters in Columbus, Ohio: "We're going strong and we're going all the way."

Clinton's victories follows 12 straight defeats to Obama. The New York senator broke her rival's winning streak by taking Rhode Island after Obama was declared the winner in Vermont.

Confetti rained down on Clinton as she took the stage at her rally. She told the crowd, "This nation's coming back and so is this campaign."

Clinton referenced Ohio's history of siding with the eventual presidential election winner, telling supporters: "You know what they say. As Ohio goes, so goes the nation."

Texas isn't done yet. Clinton and Obama are competing for more delegate support in caucuses in Texas that began 15 minutes after the state's primary polls closed.
