Michael Steele, the lieutenant governor of Maryland, a black Republican and the all-but-declared GOP nominee for an open Senate seat in '06, will be giving the annual John XXIII Lecture at CUA Law School. A very newsworthy speech -- on "Lawyers in Service to Society" -- and some interesting follow-up questions are foreseen... and it marks Steele's "coming out" in anticipation of the Senate run.
Everything runs live at 4.30 (ET) on C-SPAN. Worst-case scenario, you can catch the video here.
More soon. Pray for New Orleans.
