Mitt Romney wins Republican-dominated Texas

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Mitt Romney has overwhelmingly defeated President Barack Obama to carry Republican-dominated Texas.

That means the state's trove of 38 electoral votes will go to Romney. Only California has more electoral votes than Texas.

Neither candidate spent much time or money campaigning in Texas, though Obama once jokingly said that Texas could someday vote for a Democrat. Republicans hold every statewide office in Texas and control the Legislature.

Both candidates attended large fundraisers that raised millions for their party and campaigns.
