Brown Generates Fundraising Edge in Governor Race

Posted:
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown has generated a big fundraising edge over Republican Larry Hogan in the Maryland governor's race, according to the latest fundraising reports filed with the state Friday.
   
Brown, a Democrat, reported having more than $900,000 cash on hand on Friday. He started the general election with $1.4 million cash on hand. Brown and the Maryland Democratic Party have raised more than $5.6 million since the primary for his campaign. That means Brown has raised more than $7 million for the general election.
   
Hogan is using public campaign financing. That means he is limited to spending $2.6 million in state funding. However, the Republican Party can spend an additional $1.8 million for Hogan's campaign. The state GOP reported raising about $750,000 in the latest reporting period for Hogan, who has about $125,000 in cash on hand in money raised with the party for his campaign.
   
The latest reporting period covers Aug. 20 to Oct. 19.
   
Brown's campaign has raised more than $2.8 million for the period, while the Maryland Democratic Party has raised $1.3 million, including $900,000 in its federal account, for a total of $4.1 million raised in the report's timeframe.
   
Both candidates have received a fundraising boost from prominent national political figures.
   
Former President Bill Clinton attended a fundraiser for Brown last month in Potomac that raised more than $1 million.
   
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, chairman of the Republican Governors Association and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, helped raise about $400,000 for Hogan's campaign at a fundraiser in Bethesda last month. Christie also attended a fundraiser this week in Maryland for Hogan, but money raised from that event was not included in the latest reporting period.
