And so did Biden in Delaware.
Rand Paul, on the other hand, wasn't allowed to do this in Kentucky.

Can anybody give me a list/map of all states that allows candidates both for president and for a second office?

The idea that Beto could win the Senate even without the burden of also running for vice president is fanciful. Moreover, since if by some chance he were to succeed, the Democrats would then likely narrowly control the Senate, he'd be under immense pressure to keep his Senate seat and let the new President nominate a different Veep rather than have Republican potentially win a special election.

So, regardless of whether it is legally doable, politically it makes no sense for Beto. It only makes sense for an incumbent from a relatively safe district or State to attempt simultaneously running for Vice President and another office.
