Muse replaces flyer

ElectionsBenjamin L. Cardin

Democratic Senate candidate C. Anthony Muse's campaign is distributing a new flyer at polling locations Tuesday that does not note the number of Jews in the Senate.

Muse, who is running against incumbent Sen. Ben Cardin, faced questions over a flyer his campaign had distributed that provided the racial breakdown of the Senate, noted that there are no African Americans in the chamber and then included the percentage of people who are Jewish. No other religion was included.

Muse is black. Cardin is Jewish.

The new flyer is similar to the old one but no longer lists the number of Jews. At the time, Muse said those questioning the flyer, including the Baltimore Jewish Council, missed the point. "This has nothing to do with who is in the U.S. Senate," the campaign said of the flyer last week. "It's about who isn't."
