His performance was bested by Blaine Young (R), president of the Frederick County Board of Commissioners, who earlier this week reported raising $446,952 during the past year and having $349,277 cash in hand.

Both Republican hopefuls lag far behind the leading Democrats, however.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D), Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D) and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman (D) all reported raising more than $1 million during the past year, and all three have substantially larger war chests.

Gansler reported $5.2 million in the bank, while Ulman said he had $2.1 million and Brown reported $1.6 million.

A fourth Democrat eyeing the race, Del. Heather R. Mizeur (D-Montgomery), reported having more than $380,000 in the bank.
