While Rooting for the Man of Steele....

For a fascinating look at the U.S. Senate race in Maryland, see Michael Barone here.

A snippet:

A Democratic-Republican struggle for the votes of middle-class blacks will be something new in American politics. Previously, political strategists have focused on middle-class blacks only in Democratic primaries, like the ones in which McKinney was defeated. Political organizational efforts among this group have been limited to Democratic efforts to register and turn out black voters. It's not clear whether Steele has the potential to make serious inroads in Prince George's. But it's probably the only way he can win, so he'll probably try.
