In a last-ditch effort to get back into the race, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Melvin A. "Mickey" Steinberg said yesterday that he is the only candidate with a chance to defeat front-runner Parris N. Glendening in tomorrow's primary and called for help from supporters of two back-of-the-pack rivals.
The lieutenant governor specifically appealed to supporters of Sens. American Joe Miedusiewski and Mary H. Boergers.
Mr. Steinberg trailed Mr. Glendening, the three-term Prince George's County executive, 20 percent to 45 percent in a poll released Saturday by Mason-Dixon Political Media Research of Columbia. Mr. Miedusiewski and Mrs. Boergers followed with 13 percent and 10 percent, respectively.
