I prefer that Cardin-MD retires in 2030 because the 4 MD Democratic statewide officials will run.

Governor Wes Moore(a black male),Lt Governor Aruna Miller(Indian Female),
Attorney General Anthony Brown(a black male) and Comptroller Brooke Lierman(White Female) will complete their 2nd term in 2030.
MD sent 1 White Female to the US Senate(Barbara Mikulski).
There has not been any non white US Senator from MD.
There is 1 likely black female Democratic MD US Senate candidate in 2024.- Angela Alsobrooks.
Angela Alsobrooks does not have a base outside of Prince George’s County.
I like Jamie Raskin and John Sarbanes but I think it is time MD sends a non white male to the US Senate.
I preferred that Anthony Brown ran for re-election to his MD-4CD US House seat in 2022 because it would make it easier him for him to run for the US Senate in 2024 if and when Ben Cardin decides to retire. Anthony Brown will be in the middle of his first term as Attorney General in 2024.
Anthony Brown would be the 3rd top tier MD Democratic US Senate candidate in 2024 along with Jamie Raskin and John Sarbanes.
Anthony Brown is the most experienced.(24 to 30 years)
8 years in the MD House of Delegates.
8 years as MD Lt. Governor
6 years in the US House.
2 to 8 years as MD Attorney General.
John Sarbanes(18 to 24 years)
18 to 24 years in the US House.
Jamie Raskin(18 to 24 years)
10 years in the MD State Senate.
8 to 14 years in the US House.
Aruna Miller(10 to 16 years)
8 years in the MD House of Delegates
2 to 8 years as MD Lt Governor.
Brooke Lierman(10 to 16 years)
8 years in the MD House of Delegates
2 to 8 years as MD Comptroller.
Glenn Ivey(10 to 16 years)
8 years as Prince George’s County State Attorney
2 to 8 years in the US House of Representatives.
David Trone(8 to 14 years)
8 to 14 years in the US House.
Wes Moore(2 to 8 years)
2 to 8 years as Governor.

How involved was Carolyn McCarthy in the 2022 NY-3rd and NY-4th CD US House Elections?

The reason why I am bringing up Carolyn McCarthy is that McCarthy got elected to the US House from NY-4th CD(SW Nassau County) in 1996 by unseating a Republican incumbent US House member Dan Frisa who voted against the ban on assault weapons. Back then McCarthy was a nurse from Mineola whose husband and son were victims of the 1993 LIRR massacre.
McCarthy served in the US House for 18 years. During McCarthy’s tenure, She was a very popular. McCarthy would have help the Democratic nominee in NY-4. NY-3 would have made a difference had the Long Island Press(Newsday/NY Times) disclosed information about their investigation of George Santos.
The Republicans won NY-3 and NY-4 by reminding voters that they are tough on crime. Democrats need to remind voters that perjury(Lying) is a crime and not supporting a ban on assault weapons or a background check on individuals who want to buy guns does not make you tough on crime.

Carolyn McCarthy’s son Kevin McCarthy survived while her husband Dennis McCarthy did not.

Josh Lafazan

Raskin may not be a candidate for the 2024 MD US Senate Election if Cardin retires.

1) Raskin is next in line to chair the US House Oversight and Reform committee if and when the Democrats regain control of the US House.
2) Raskin has recently been diagnosed with cancer.

John Sarbanes is likely to be the frontrunner for the MD US Senate seat held by Ben Cardin and Paul Sarbanes(John Sarbanes father).
