Remember when State Senator C. Anthony Muse made headlines in 2012 and endorsed Rushern Baker for Executive? Many observers see it is pivotal to helping Baker win over a base that has never been his strongest, black evangelicals. Muse is also bishop a powerful mega-church in south county and has connections with other powerful church leaders. Well that was then and this is now. Today Senator Muse will officially declare his campaign to unseat Ben Cardin in the Democratic Primary. Hours before that announcement Executive Baker announced his is backing Cardin in a Youtube video posted on the Maryland Democratic Party’s page.

The video, which is about 3 minutes long, has Baker touting Cardin coming to his office for a meeting on how he could be helpful to the county. After showing the video to a leading county official they had one thing to say, “what has done? Not a damn thing!”. The official went on to say “Ben wasn’t there in our battle with Montgomery County to move HHS to the county. He hasn’t helped Edwards in her push to get GAO to look at redlining issues impacting federal government leasing contracts, and to tout his help on health care is to spit in the face of voters who know he hasn’t done anything.”

Senator Muse will kick off his campaign tonight with a rally at Camelot in Prince George’s County.

  1. If the first example this nameless critic of Cardin offers is “Ben wasn’t there in our battle with Montgomery County to move HHS to the county” we can all dismiss everything he says after that.

    Why would a US Senator who represents all of Maryland take on the state’s most populous and probably powerful county (Montgomery) on behalf of Prince George’s or any other county trying to steal/move a major federal agency. Sheer idiocy to think any Senator would insert themselves into such a parochial fiasco.
