Frosh outspends primary opponents

Maryland Sen. Brian E. Frosh has outraised and outspent his opponents in the Democratic primary race for attorney general, in which polls have consistently had the veteran lawmaker trailing at least one and sometimes both of them.

State campaign finance records filed Friday show that Frosh (Montgomery) has launched television ads, deluged homes with mailers and asked for contributions. It has paid off.

According to a Washington Post poll this month, Frosh has cut Del. Jon S. Cardin’s nearly
20-point advantage in February down to 6 percent — with a margin of error of seven percentage points. — and has distanced himself from Del. Aisha N. Braveboy (Prince George’s).

It appears Frosh also has cut Cardin’s fundraising edge by pulling in more money in the past reporting period. Frosh raised $169,500 between May 21 and June 8, compared with $156,000 for Cardin (Baltimore County).

Cardin has about $317,000 in cash on hand. Frosh about $252,000.

Braveboy’s fundraising fell sharply, collecting nearly $7,000 in donations. She has $25,000 in the bank.

Similarities cited in two robberies

The man who robbed a convenience store May 10 in Greenbelt might be the same one who held up a pizza takeout restaurant in Charles County two days later, authorities said last week.

The Charles County sheriff’s office listed the similarities: clothing, a mask and — perhaps most significantly — the weapon.

In both robberies, on Good Luck Road in Greenbelt and on Smallwood Road in Charles County, the robber reportedly carried a machete.
