Rep. Benjamin Cardin (D) and Lt. Gov. Michael Steele (R) - the candidates seeking the seat of retiring Sen. U.S. Sen Paul Sarbanes - might be best known to Western Marylanders for their dueling puppy dog ads. But fluff aside, Cardin offers a solid, documented track record of sound policy, while Steele has yet to define himself for the voters.
