WASHINGTON (AP) - Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic presidential primary in Arkansas, where she once served as the state's first lady.

Clinton earned her latest win in the string of contests known as Super Tuesday. She has also won the Democratic primaries in Georgia, Virginia, Alabama and Tennessee, putting her ahead of her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has won the race in his home state of Vermont.

Clinton's husband, Bill Clinton, served as governor of Arkansas before he was elected president in 1992.
