Even with the entrance of former Gov. Gary Johnson into the contest for U.S. Senate, we in New Mexico can’t claim the excitement of the race for Senate taking place right now in Texas. ….

So, let’s look at what is happening in Texas, where GOP incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz is battling U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat from El Paso. While Cruz remains the likely winner — states don’t come much redder than Texas — there is a groundswell of support for the Democrat that could signal the long-awaited transition to a purple Texas.

If nothing else, the campaign is fascinating, with Beto, as he is called, having a real shot at winning.
