Black, But Not Like Me
Strangely, none of these people seem to have vocally endorsed Del. Anthony Brown (also from PGC).
Look, I know Kathleen Kennedy Townsend picked an old gray Republican for her running mate, but that was her mistake, not the Democratic Party. Putting Steele in the Senate will not make the Democratic Party "pay attention." What it will do is put a another rubber stamp in the Senate.
This support looks to be nothing more than a vengence vote. It's either that, or PGC has more black Republicans mascarading as Democrats than I thought. It should be pretty clear at this point where Cardin and Steele stand on the issues, and which candidate has what it takes to represent Maryland in the US Senate.
For Steele, this is simply a way to bounce back from his poor performance on Meet The Press this past Sunday.
The list of the "Black Democrats for Steele" include former county executive Wayne K. Curry and Prince George's council members David Harrington (D-Cheverly), Samuel H. Dean (D-Mitchellville), Camille Exum (D-Seat Pleasant), Tony Knotts (D-Temple Hills) and Marilynn Bland (D-Clinton). I wonder if they would be doing this if they were all up for re-election?
