and honored by the long line of distinguished Marylanders who have preceded
me since 1789.  I am more impressed with the occasion and the place because in
this Chamber the initial steps were taken which resulted in the formation of the
Constitution of the United States, and also because the federal electoral
College was borrowed from and modeled upon the Senatorial electoral College
