Drill, Baby, Drill

Anita Kumar

There's not much chance that Republican presidential nominee John McCain is going to win Maryland's 10 electoral votes.

So some Maryland Republicans, including one of the state's political stars, are traveling to Virginia and other battleground states to try to keep the state red.

Former lieutenant governor Michael S. Steele will headline a "Drill Baby Drill" tour across Virginia tomorrow and attend rallies in Winchester, Harrisonburg, Staunton, Charlottesville and Fredericksburg.

Steele, who lost a U.S. Senate race two years ago, is chairman of GOPAC, a group that recruits Republican candidates across the country.

Other prominent Maryland Republicans, including former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold, have already traveled to Virginia or other key states.

I wonder why Steele is not at home in Prince George's County trying to build the Republican party there.
