The Maryland gubernatorial ticket of Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) raised more than $800,000 during the past two and a half weeks, the campaign announced Monday, likely adding to its financial advantage heading into the June 24 primary.
Brown faces Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather R. Mizeur (Montgomery) in the Democratic contest.
As of May 20, the deadline for the previous reporting period, Brown had $4.15 million in the bank, while Gansler had $3.11 million and Mizeur reported about $1 million, including matching funds for which she has qualified by participating in the state’s public financing system.
The latest reports cover fundraising between May 21 and June 8. They are not due to the Board of Elections until Friday, but Brown’s campaign released some of his numbers early. His totals include money raised by both Brown and his running mate, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman (D).
