An interesting race to watch.

Cardin vs Steele in Maryland.

"Rep. Ben Cardin looks to have won by 8 points over former congressman and former NAACP president Kweisi Mfume, 45.8% - 37.7%"

Michael Steele (Republican) is the first African-American to win statewide in liberal Maryland.

The Democrats rejected their black candidate and the Republicans embraced ours. It will be interesting to see how the black community, who traditionally voted Democrat, reacts.
