Trump Beats Biden in Texas to Maintain Republican Hold on State
(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump defeated Democrat Joe Biden in Texas, the Associated Press projected, keeping the state in Republican hands despite a more diverse urban electorate.
Texas, which was considered a battleground this year, went for Trump by 9 percentage points in 2016. A Democratic presidential candidate hasn’t won Texas since Jimmy Carter carried it in 1976. The state accounts for 38 of the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House.
