A Black Political Uprising in MD?

Shades of Kathleen Kennedy-Townsend, Part Deux??? Word is fast spreading of an outright revolt by Black Democratic leaders in Maryland if U.S. Senate candidate, former Congressman and NAACP President Kweisi Mfume doesn't win the primary. MD Dem party bosses appear to place their clout behind Rep. Ben Cardin (D-MD) and we predict this will not bode well when a chunk of the African American electorate in that state - 30% of voters in the state - rethinks party loyalties.

With Dems making that old school move, the Prediction for 2006 stands: we believe Lt. Gov. Michael Steele (R) will be Maryland's first Black U.S. Senator.
