Prince George's County event sparks rumors of Wayne Curry running for governor

It had nearly all the elements of a campaign kickoff: A video biography, a prosperous, politically connected audience, a rousing speech critical of the state's leadership.

But at the end of a night billed as a "birthday celebration" and tribute to former Prince George's county executive Wayne K. Curry, attendees left wondering whether Curry was gearing up for a gubernatorial run or simply enjoying the spotlight's glow once more.

Before a packed crowd Thursday in an Upper Marlboro ballroom -- dotted with County Council members, state delegates and union chiefs -- Curry delivered an assault on state leaders and accused them of taking the votes of Prince George's residents for granted.

"You know, some of our leaders don't get it," Curry said. "Like the captain of the Titanic, they're sailing smugly, disregarding serious warnings that icebergs are ahead. . . . The tribulations of regular people only landed on their ears at the commencement of the election season."

The picture they used for this article is a cropped version of one they had posted earlier. In the original photo, one of the people standing behind Curry looked an awful lot like Michael Steele.
I would not put it past the rethuglican machine to help Curry run in an attempt to split the Dem vote. His connections with Erlich, who appointed Curry as Commissioner to the Maryland Port Commission in 2003, need to be exposed before any damage is done. As I recall, he was on the short list to replace Steele in Erlich's second run for gov.
