Del. Gerry L. Brewster of Towson continues to lead all other candidates in campaign fund raising in the race for Maryland's 2nd Congressional District seat.
Mr. Brewster, a Democrat, raised $209,000 and still has $41,000 on hand, his report said.
The most recent Federal Election Commission reports, which were made available yesterday, show Mr. Brewster maintaining his lead in money raised for Tuesday's primary. He also led for two earlier reporting periods.
Del. Connie Galiazzo DeJuliis of Dundalk, a Democrat challenging Mr. Brewster in the primary, reported raising $111,000, with $30,900 still on hand.
Among the Republican candidates, Del. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. of Timonium has raised the most money. Mr. Ehrlich's report shows $160,000 raised with $21,000 left on hand.
Bill Frank, a Towson banker who is considered Mr. Ehrlich's chief opponent in the primary, trails his rival by a considerable margin. Mr. Frank has raised $51,000, with $1,300 on hand.
Mr. Frank, who is running as an outsider who says he will go to Washington, make the tough votes and return to private life, has refused to accept money from Political Action Committees.
The reports show that Mrs. DeJuliis has received the most money from PACs, with $48,000. Mr. Ehrlich has received $44,000 from PACs, and Mr. Brewster $37,000.
Four other Democrats and one Republican are running for the seat being vacated by Helen D. Bentley, a five-term Republican who is running for governor.
None of the five has raised as much as $5,000, the minimum amount required to file a campaign finance report.
