Cardin Holds On in Maryland
Democratic Congressman Ben Cardin has held off to win a Senate seat in Maryland against a strong campaign from Lt. Gov. Michael Steele. Any time you run a African American as a Republican (Steele), you're bound to see some really nasty rhetoric. These kinds of campaigning show we have a long way to go to fend off racism, even in our pulpits.
