November 30, 1999|By TAMELA BAKER

Lt. Gov. Michael Steele will be the featured speaker at the Washington County Republican Club's annual Lincoln Day Dinner on May 10 at the Four Points Sheraton on Dual Highway.

A social hour begins at 6 p.m. with dinner from 7 to 8 p.m. Tickets cost $40 for individuals and $75 for couples.

Steele, a Prince George's County native who was elected with Gov. Robert Ehrlich in 2002, is running this year for the seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen. Paul Sarbanes, a Democrat.

Three days after the Lincoln Day Dinner, the man Steele hopes to succeed will address county Democrats at the yearly Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner.

Sarbanes will be the featured guest at the May 13 event, also at the Four Points Sheraton. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets cost $30 in advance and $35 at the door.

A Baltimore attorney born in Salisbury, Md., Sarbanes is Maryland's longest-serving U.S. senator. He was first elected to the Senate in 1976 after serving three terms in the House. Last year, Sarbanes said he would not be seeking another term in the Senate.

Both groups anticipate that a number of candidates in this year's races will make appearances at the dinners.
