    With eyes clear but certainly not starry, we enthusiastically endorse Beto O'Rourke for U.S. Senate. The West Texas congressman's command of issues that matter to this state, his unaffected eloquence and his eagerness to reach out to all Texans make him one of the most impressive candidates this editorial board has encountered in many years.

Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, is expected to easily defeat Republican challenger Jim Renacci, Ohio will not play a prominent role in whether Democrats seize control of the Senate from the GOP, which holds a slender lead of 51-49.
