Washington (AP) John McCain is the winner of two of today's primary contests: Ohio and Vermont.

The Republican presidential candidate has moved to within about 130 of the delegate total needed to clinch the nomination.

Aides are getting ready to display a giant banner bearing the magic number -- 1,191 -- to serve as a backdrop for an anticipated victory celebration.

Over on the Democratic side, Barack Obama is the winner over Hillary Rodham Clinton in Vermont, but Ohio remains too close to call. The Vermont victory is Obama’s 12th straight over the former first lady.

There are also primaries in Rhode Island and Texas.

The Associated Press has been making its calls based on surveys of voters as they left the polls.
