I talk with Texans of all stripes all day long here in Santa Fe, and most of them are for Beto. They all agree that the key element for him to win is going to be whether the Hispanics are going to show up to vote, or not.

I surmise that Beto has given them many excellent reasons to do so in his stalwart opposition to Trump's policies, really leading by example at every juncture. Surely, the Kavanaugh hearings will spark such indignation that fence sitters will get off the fence and come out to vote.

Anna Tinsley at the Fort Worth Star Telegram is one of the top political journalists in Texas, always on top of breaking news as well as in-depth analysis. I wish she had mentioned his rally in Austin Saturday night with Willie Nelson, which might just garner him more votes than a debate with Cruz....

This is summarized from her article today:

Round 2 of Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Democrat U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke has been postponed. The two were scheduled to debate Sunday at the University of Houston, but apparently Kavanaugh's nomination process has complicated things.

Cruz and O'Rourke first debated Sept. 21 at SMU. This battle for Texas' Senate seat has become one of the costliest in the United States. Many Americans in general are trying to decide if O'Rourke can pull this off.

Political polls vary wildly, from Cruz ahead by 9% to Beto ahead by 2%. The Cook Political Report shifted the race from "leans Republican" to "toss-up."

"The Sept. 30 debate between Senator Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O'Rourke at the University of Houston has been postponed," the college posted on Facebook Friday morning. "Senator Cruz will be in Washington, D.C. for weekend votes." The debate was to have focused on domestic policy had been scheduled for Sunday.

Registration for voting closes October 9, and there is one more Senate debate scheduled, for Oct. 16 in San Antonio.

Early voting for this year's Nov. 6 midterm election runs from Oct. 22-Nov. 2.

This Texas race is such a huge election in which I have taken a keen interest. So much depends on Beto's victory, on many vital and urgent levels.

I also want to see Idaho Representative Paulette Jordan win the Governor's race in Idaho, and here in New Mexico, I support former Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham for NM Governor.

Things look better and better every day for that big Blue Pendulum the 1st week in November! Maybe it will be more like a political bloodbath, one that will benefit all progressive minded Americans, and restore world-wide faith in our experiment in Democracy!

What do you think?
