COLLEGE STATION -- As the presidential campaign continues to heat up, so does the U.S. Senate race.
Tonight six of the seven Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate came together during a forum event hosted by several local Republican organizations held on Texas A&M's campus.
The forum gave students and the public the chance to hear from someone who may be our next senator.
The Democratic party also plans to hold a similar forum sometime in January also on A&M's campus.
