Does Ben Cardin think he's too good to show up?

Ben Cardin doesn't NEED to show up. He is so far ahead of the other gadfly candidates, why would he even bother wasting his time and stoop to their level.

Cardin will be the nominee, deal with it....

That's a great comeback.

The truth is, Ben Cardin has no reason to waste any time debating the other candidates. None of them have shown the ability to compete with Cardin in the polls or in campaign money. Cardin only hurts himself by joining a debate with the likes of Kweisi Mfume, Allan Lichtman or Joshua Rales. Why would he join something that he has absolutely nothing to gain from and everything to lose?

Your right in a sense. If Cardin participates, he will be exposed for the weak politician that he is. Look for a new book "Where's Benny" coming out soon.

I also note that former Baltimore County Executive and State Senator Dennis Rasmussen is positioning himself as the only true threat to Cardin. If Cardin not going to show why would any candidate waste their time. The reality is there are only two viable candidates in this race Cardin the presumed front runner and Rasmussen a proven vote getter. With this many people in the race the winner only needs 280,000 votes or 33% to win the primary. Only Cardin and Rasmussen have demonstrated that kind of voter support

Looking for the same thing as Fred. I just saw the post and was wondering how Lichtman did? he's a smart guy, I wonder if it showed in the debate.

Looks like Cardin has this race but its not over till its over and Cardin needs to get to MoCo and PrGeCo and shmooze some if he wants to ensure victory./

Note the left of center group sponsoring this forum. No Dem. running for a State WIde Office should hang around with this group unless he or she has excellent national defense and national security credentials. All it will do is give your Republican opponent a free rick to throw at you in the November race. Simply put, if you want a leftist tint hang with this group.

What's so wrong with the leftist tint? Maryland is a heavily democratic state... this isn't Alabama.
