A list of Lierman's backers

Sunday, August 29, 2010

The crowded race for the Democratic nomination for three seats in District 16, which includes parts of Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Potomac, has drawn several challengers. But 23-year-old Kyle Lierman has raised far more than any of the non-incumbents for the part-time job, which pays $43,500 plus expenses. The primary is Sept. 14.

Among his big donors are:

-- Irene Pollin, widow of real estate and sports mogul Abe Pollin ($4,000) who has lent her name as Lierman's campaign chairman

-- Former Democratic National Committee chairman and Vermont governor Howard Dean ($500)

-- Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa ($100)

-- The campaign committee of Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.), ($2,000), a longtime family friend

James Zogby, president and co-founder of the Arab American Institute ($500)

-- Local financial adviser Anne Albertine, a registered Republican ($250)

Mark Shriver, a former delegate and member of the Kennedy clan ($300)

-- New Hampshire political activist Parker Hansel ($50)

-- Renowned scientist Dr. Robert C. Gallo, co-discoverer of the AIDS virus, who held a fundraiser for Lierman and also donated $1000

-- Longtime commentator and Roll Call executive editor Morton Kondracke ($500)
