OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Millions of people in the nation's midsection are under the threat of violent weather. The National Weather Service says a small tornado touched down in Kansas. No injuries were reported. The region has also had reports of hail ranging from quarter-sized to golf-ball sized. A tornado watch that includes North Texas, western central Texas and most of Oklahoma is expected to last until midnight.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Exit polling finds most Republicans in three states holding primaries today say they are voting for their candidate, rather than against his opponents. Only a quarter of voters in Connecticut and Maryland say they voted for someone because they opposed the other candidates. And in Pennsylvania, even fewer — less than one in five — say they were casting a negative vote. Primaries are also being held today in Delaware and Rhode Island.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is distancing itself from a robocall using President Barack Obama's voice and urging Pennsylvania voters to choose Rep. Chaka Fattah in today's Democratic primary. The call uses old audio of Obama acknowledging Fattah at an event for his work on neuroscience research. Fattah, running for a 12th term, faces trial on federal racketeering and bribery charges in May.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Secret Service says a man fleeing a robbery jumped a fence at the White House complex today and was arrested. The breach triggered a brief lockdown at the presidential residence. The man jumped the fence alongside the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is part of the White House complex.
