MD Senate: Kweisi For You

As I suspected, Kweisi Mfume’s hat is in the ring. I have to say, even if Steele runs for and wins the GOP nomination, this may not be the old-school/new-school fight I’d been hoping for. Mfume’s opening salvos are distinctly Obamaesque:

"My goal is to give a new voice to the issues that affect every-day working men and working women and the families that they are a part of," Mfume said during a late morning press conference in a lounge at Camden Yards, where he was joined by five of his six sons.

He said his campaign would focus on "overcrowded and ill-equipped schools," health-care costs and disparities and fighting "low expectations" for some youths.

I am officially pleased. I like Mfume a lot, and in a race where the Democrat is a heavyish favorite anyway, this kind of rhetoric should make him more than competetive.

He's got to get the nomination first remember!

It's Mfume's nomination to lose; he should be a shoe-in in the general, as well.

The GOP won't win this seat for the same reason Democrat Brad Carson couldn't beat a weak opponent in the Oklahoma Senate race last year. Sure, Oklahoma had just elected a Democratic governor. Didn't matter - voters knew the stakes were very different for the Senate, and a vote for Carson was a vote for Ted Kennedy. Maryland voters know that a vote for dream candidate Steele is a vote for Bush and his awful 2nd term agenda.

Anyway, Steele had zero pull with black voters in 2002 - Ehrlich won the usual 10% of the black vote. And this was before he stood up to defend Trent Lott in the wake of the Thurmond tribute. If Steele runs, Mfume wins 55-45, at least.

I like Kweisi, but it's not his to lose - yet. There are others who, if they enter the race, become prohibitive favorites. Kweisi knew this, and so declaring quickly was v. smart, as it might dissaude others from running.

Specifically - if Elijah Cummings runs, it's his for the taking (nomination and general).

Steny Hoyer has ruled himself out.
As has Albert Wynn.

So has Doug Duncan, who will continue to run for Gov.; it appears Martin O'Malley is also committed to losing to Duncan in the guernatorial primary, which is too bad, but so be it.

Leaving - Dutch? Maybe, but I just don't know.

I'm starting to get the feeling Chris Van Hollen will run, if none of the older Reps do; I don't like this, because it makes it a tough choice for me. But it'd be a helluva race.

Mfume is the only one of this group with real national stature. This will help his fundraising enormously; money will flood in from all over the country.

I agree there are others in Maryland who would make excellent senators. It's just that Mfume, as former head of the NAACP, has the name recognition and the "street cred," if you will, which the others lack.

Time will tell. Hey, it's not like the Rethugs have any hope of picking up this seat. The primary will be the whole ballgame, for the most part.
