Another Name for 2006

So far most of the Maryland political talk has centered on Senate and Governor, and the House and LG seats that might open up. And while local talk about legislative and County races (and don't forget this week's local elections), the talk is just getting started about other statewide elections. So, mention of candidates for Attorney General (if AG Curran opts not to run again) has included Montgomery County Council Presient Tom Perez, Prince Georges' County States Attorney Glen Ivey, and now a Republican:
State's Attorney Scott Rolle told Frederick Forum on Saturday that Mike Steele is pressing him to run for state attorney general. Haircut Bobby, in an interview on the show, all but endorsed Scott, calling him "a very talented man, a proven winner."
