The United States Constitution provides for the extradition of fugitives, and applies to all 50 states, so there is no state where you would be safe from the possibility of extradition. Whether Texas would actually come pick you up in another state is a separate issue, but there is no way to know if they would or not. It is more likely when there is a felony charge. But even if they don't extradite you, the warrant will still be open and you can be arrested and held for at least 30 days, and up to 60 days, while they decide. The warrant will be open indefinitely, too, so it will follow you around for the rest of your life.
