Concrete results will be seen on March 29 when county conventions are held across the state, however CNN is reporting that Obama gained more delegates from Texas overall than Clinton, stopping short of calling it a win in Texas.
And though Clinton won more delegates than Obama in the primary, 65 to 61, Obama's wider delegate margin in the caucuses gives him the overall statewide delegate lead, 99 to 94 — or once superdelegate endorsements are factored in, 109 to 106.
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama has won the Texas Democratic caucuses and will get more delegates out of the state than his rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton, who won the state's primary, according to CNN estimates.

Here’s the important question, optics wise. Will CNN change the color of Texas on their map for Obama?
