    It's the size. Republicans could lose Oklahoma and not particularly care, but if they lose Texas, that ends their hope of winning the electoral college. If they lose their ability to gerrymander Texas' congressional seats, they might lose enough seats to endanger their majority. Even just forcing them to keep Texas campaign money in Texas will have a positive effect in other states. Flipping Texas would give the Republicans a kick in their rears that they'll feel in their eyeballs.
