Haines outspent Cummings by 9-1


Incumbent Republican state Sen. Larry E. Haines outspent his Democratic challenger by nearly $84,000 in the race to represent eastern and central Carroll County.

The most recent campaign finance reports show that Mr. Haines spent $94,000 in his campaign to retain the seat he won in 1990. His opponent, Cynthia H. Cummings, had spent $10,100 as of the Oct. 28 deadline for filing campaign spending reports.

In the state Senate election for the district that includes western Carroll and eastern Frederick counties, Democrat George H. Littrell Jr. spent $114,000 and Republican Timothy R. Ferguson spent $61,000 in their contest for the seat vacated by Charles H. Smelser, who did not seek re-election this year.

In the House of Delegates election from the district including western Carroll and eastern Frederick counties, incumbent Republican Donald B. Elliott has spent $9,000 in his re-election campaign.

Mr. Elliott received contributions from political action committees of the Maryland Realtors, the Maryland Trial Lawyers Association and the Maryland Aggregates Association.

The Carroll County Board of Elections did not receive a copy of Democrat Roy S. Pfeiffer's campaign finance statement, which was filed with the State Board of Elections in Annapolis.

Mr. Pfeiffer could not be reached for information yesterday.
