Dem's have a lot to choose from in Maryland
Sen. Sarbanes (infamous for the Sarbanes/Oxley legislation) is retiring from the senate after this term. A couple of the Democrats hoping to replace him have been in the news lately. They can choose this guy:
Josh Rales, a Democratic candidate for Maryland's U.S. Senate seat, paid a drug-treatment center in Baltimore to drive its recovering addicts to last week's debate in College Park, where they held signs supporting his campaign.
To be fair, I should admit neither of these guys are likely to be the nominee. Right now this is considered a fairly close race between Ben Cardin and Kweisi Mfume. Mfume is a former congressman with a rather checkered past who was pushed out as head of the NAACP last year. Cardin is a ten term congressman notable for being wrong on nearly every issue. Neither should be elected in November, but I don't expect the people of Maryland to make a good choice.
