Gov. Ann Richards today will name Texas Railroad Commissioner Robert Krueger to the Senate seat being vacated by Treasury Secretary-designate Lloyd Bentsen, sources said Monday.

And what it means is that during the next two years there will be at least three and possibly four elections for the Bentsen seat. It all started Tuesday when Gov.
