9:50 PM: Could be more trouble for Biden in Arizona and Nevada if he underperforms with Hispanic voters in those states:

Subpar Hispanic #s in RGV may keep Biden from winning TX, but he looks likely to win the 5 big urban counties by 900k+ votes (vs 562 for HRC). He’ll win Williamson & Hays outside Austin, run much closer to even in Collin (-11k vs. -60k in 16) & even halve Denton deficit. A path
