CNBC covered the story and added these details:
President Donald Trump is leading Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden in Texas, but the contest in the Lone Star State still remained too close to call on Tuesday evening, NBC News reported.
Texas has 38 Electoral College votes, second only to California’s 55. Polling averages going into Tuesday had indicated a close race with a slight Trump advantage.
As of 9:45 p.m. ET, 74 percent of the expected vote in Texas had been tallied, and Trump was leading the former vice president by less than 1 percentage point.
President Trump won the state of Texas in 2016 by 52% and this year it looks like he will win it again.
The last time Texas turned blue was in 1976 when Jimmy Carter was running for President.
With 38 electoral votes Texas is a must-win for President Trump.
