    He was pro Iraq, his challenger was an idiot too.

    Ben Cardin has an established record, whereas Michael Steele's first experience holding elected office was as Maryland's Lt. Governor.

    Barack Obama came to Maryland campaigning for Cardin and
    encouraged black voters to avoid using race as a litmus test.

    And Democrats outnumber Republicans by more than 2 to 1 in
    Maryland.

    easy...one major issue was that he sided with Bush on the war...once that came out, nobody was down with Steele...times are too serious to vote for a candidate just because he's black...

    Maryland is mostly a democratic state, so I didn't expect him to win anyway.

    shouldn't underestimate the intelligence of all black voters...

    Blacks make up the majority of the Democrats in Baltimore City
    and Prince Georges County, however the rest of the counties
    are predominantly white. Baltimore City and PG favored Kweisi Mfume in the primary. Mfume would have been much better for Baltimore than either of the choices in November.

    He LOST because CARDIN got ENOUGH BLACK VOTE to BEAT STEELE.

    however, your example was not relevant to all the Maryland blacks as they were the subject of your thread and Caribsun's subsequent response, especially when you stated that you were not trying to compare the Newark blacks to the Maryland blacks when asked.

    The Fact of the matter is that the Republican Party DID NOT put the Full Weight of their Political Machinery $$$$$$$ behind their Black Candidates that sought Political Office during this period..........

    ............so much for a Condiloser candidacy for ANYTHING.......
