Cardin skips debate in Charles County

The Washington Times

"U.S. Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin last night skipped an NAACP-sponsored debate in Charles County, Md., a day after the Democratic Senate nominee stammered and stumbled during a faceoff with the Republican nominee, Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele.

Debate organizers said they had expected Mr. Cardin to participate but his campaign had not made a firm commitment to appear with Mr. Steele and Kevin Zeese, the nominee of the Green, Libertarian and Populist parties.

Cardin campaign spokesman Oren Shur said that a scheduling conflict prevented the 10-term congressman from attending the debate at New Community Church of God in Christ in Waldorf.
'He's campaigning at community events in Prince George's County tonight and has accepted an invitation to debate at the statewide NAACP conference [in Baltimore] on Saturday,' Mr. Shur said. 'We expect to see Michael Steele there.'

Mr. Steele said last night that he would try to adjust his schedule to be there."
