Policy[edit]

It would be useful to include some information or quotations on political ideology or policy, especially as he is a current candidate. Fearwig 22:49, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

2006 Election[edit]

According to CNN, Cardin now only has 48% of the vote compared to 50% for the Republican candidate. The area about him winning in the article is clearly extremely premature.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.184.58.130 (talkcontribs) 04:22, November 8, 2006 (UTC)

It would also be nice to see something about his campaign stealing Michael Steele's credit report. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 151.205.137.241 (talkcontribs) 00:00, November 11, 2006 (UTC)
I believe that is in the campaign article; it doesn't belong in the bio article. (And I believe it wasn't his campaign, technically speaking, that did it - it was the DNC or similar.) John Broughton | Talk 16:58, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Interest group ratings[edit]

The end of the section on Cardin in the House of Representatives states, "He has also received scores of 100 percent from the League of Conservation Voters and NAACP indicating stances that are in favor of environmental protection and civil rights." The interpretation is rather bold. The rating directly only indicates that perception by those two organizations. This is also only supported by a citation of Cardin's website. I would suggest revising the sentence to be more explicit.162.83.50.191 (talk) 23:30, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
