Go to "State of the Race."

Look at the map graphic — the Obama campaign has claimed victories in Nevada and Texas.

There’s the highlighted glow…the stamped hope/Obama "O" like a cattle brand…..

Obama officially lost both states, and lost the popular vote in both states, though he won one more delegate than Clinton in Nevada.

In Texas, Clinton won 1,459,814 votes, or 50.89% while Obama won 1,358,785 or 47.36%. She won 65 delegates in the primary to his 61.

We’re still unsure of the final delegate outcome in the Lone Star State because of the subsequent caucus, from which the Texas Democrats have yet to announce a final tally.

It is more than possible if not likely that Obama will win more delegates there because of the caucus, but we will not know for quite some time.

"We got more delegates in both Texas and Nevada," Obama spox Bill Burton, referring to the Obama campaign’s projection of delegates in Texas.

UPDATE: I added the word "delegate" in the third to last paragraph above, for clarity.
