It’s Official: Obama Wins Texas

The delegate battle in the Lone Star State goes to Obama 99-94.

To recap, Clinton scored a narrow primary delegate victory 65-61.

In the (ridiculously drawn out) caucus process, Obama won 38-29.

It's a net of five for Obama.

So let's revisit the delegate race since March 4:

Clinton wins

Ohio +9


Rhode Island +5

Obama wins

Texas +5


Vermont +3


Wyoming +2


Mississippi +7

Texas cancels out Rhode Island. Mississippi and Wyoming cancel out Ohio. Obama's left with a three delegate surge from Vermont.

And that doesn't count the 10 new delegates Obama netted at the Iowa county conventions. Or the five more he netted in the final counting of California.

I'll say it again. The Math is the new black. And it's a bitch for Clinton.

For more on how Obama secured his stunning victory in the Texas "two step" read this recent cover story from the magazine.
