Dear Beto,

Millions in Texas and around the country were excited by your run for Senate in 2016. You had energy and charisma and were great at diagnosing the challenges facing everyday Americans -- and how to address them.

Now, you're running for President. So are a lot of other people. While many support your campaign, attention is divided across a field of nearly two dozen smart, capable people.

Meanwhile, Sen. John Cornyn is running for re-election in Texas. You know how damaging it would be if the Republicans maintained a majority in the Senate after the 2020 elections. But if the Democrats could take the Senate and the Presidency and keep the House, our chances to stop climate change, confront white supremacy, deliver health care for all, and more will go way, way up.

You've shown real leadership in the moments after the tragic shooting in El Paso. We applaud your bluntness and honesty when asked what President Trump should do. We think these qualities would be more successfully used for another Senate run, rather than in a continued presidential campaign. We urge you to run again Sen. Cornyn in the 2020 Senate race.

Beto, the U.S. Senate needs you!
