There is a new person getting into the primary Democratic race for the chance to run for in teh general election for the U.S. Senate.
The person is white. I heard him on a radio talk show today. When explaining why he should be the person to get the Democratic nomination, he mentioned the other white candidate, Ben Cardin, by name. But he NEVER mentioned Mfume, as if Mfume is a non-factor.
This is what some white Democratic pundits in Maryland feared. The reason being is that whites will split their vote and Mfume will get to run in the general election. But this is the situation that Republicans like because they believe that the Republican candidate, Michael Steele, will wipe up the floor with Mfume.
