Former Baltimore State's Attorney candidate Ivan Bates' campaign must repay $150,000 loan

The campaign of defense attorney Ivan Bates must repay an outstanding $150,000 loan that it received during the race for Baltimore State’s Attorney, according to recently filed campaign finance reports.

Bates’ campaign received the loan from Jack Luetkemeyer Jr., a real estate entrepreneur, shortly before the June 26 Democratic primary election against incumbent Marilyn J. Mosby and former prosecutor Thiru Vignarajah. Mosby won the primary and, without a Republican challenger, will remain the city’s top prosecutor for the next four years.

Bates’ campaign only has $4,284.97 on hand, his campaign finance report shows.

Bates did not respond to several requests for comment...
