Sen. Brian E. Frosh (D-Montgomery) finished 2013 with more than twice as much money in the bank as any of his rivals for Maryland attorney general.
Frosh on Wednesday reported having more than $795,000 on hand, while Del. Jon S. Cardin (D-Baltimore County) said he had nearly $375,000. Another rival for the job, Del. C. William Frick (D-Montgomery), trailed with about $134,000 as of Jan. 8.
The report of a fourth declared candidate, Del. Aisha N. Braveboy (D-Prince George’s), was not filed by the midnight reporting deadline.
No Republicans have announced bids for attorney general, but the state party says it is continuing efforts to recruit a candidate. Both parties have primaries scheduled in June.
Frosh reported raising $582,475 during the past year while spending $177,222. He began the year with about $390,000 in his campaign account, more than any of his rivals.
Frosh’s cash on hand includes $70,000 in loans from his law practice.
Cardin reported raising $419,404 during the past year while spending $215,359.
Frick said he raised $109,878 during the period while spending $36,684.
