Del. Heather Mizeur, a relative newcomer to the jockeying to succeed Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) next year, is starting the race well behind her Democratic rivals on the fundraising front.

Mizeur (D-Montgomery) said Wednesday morning that she raised $248,671 last year and has more than $380,000 cash on hand. Financial disclosure reports are due to the State Board of Elections later Wednesday.

Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D) has announced that he has $5.2 million in the bank, while Howard County Executive Ken Ulman (D) said earlier Wednesday that he has about $2.1 million on hand. Gansler and Ulman have been eyeing the race for far longer than Mizeur.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D), who is also angling to succeed O’Malley, is expected to disclose his fundraising totals later Wednesday.

In a news release, Mizeur said that she had raised $155,671 of her money in a 10-week period from Nov. 1 to Jan. 9. That is more than O’Malley raised during the equivalent period when he was preparing for his reelection bid, Mizeur said.
