staunch Republican opposition in May By Otry Carroll Staff Wrlltr From 1845 to Texas was represented in the United States Senate by two Democrats and now the due in part to a departing Democratic faces the possibility of being represented by two Democratic Texas Railroad Commissioner Bob appointed by Ann Richards to replace Lloyd lost both of his previous attempts at the senate to the late
