In Maryland, where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-to-1, the Democratic candidate for governor trails not only the Republican incumbent in campaign cash, but also several county-level candidates — including other Republicans.
Without counting Turnbull’s fundraising, Jealous has about $265,000 on hand — less cash on hand than several county-level candidates, led by Republican County Executives Steve Schuh of Anne Arundel County with $969,000 and Allan Kittleman of Howard County with $690,000. Democrats Steuart Pittman ($328,000) and Calvin Ball ($390,000) are challenging Schuh and Kittleman for their respective seats this fall.
Turning to other statewide candidates, Comptroller Peter Franchot and Attorney General Brian Frosh both have well over $1 million on hand. Franchot is running unopposed.
Other Maryland officer holders leading Jealous: State Senate President Thomas V. “Mike” Miller, Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young, Baltimore County Councilman David Marks, and State Sen. Jim Mathias, with $665,000, $572,000, $273,000 and $269,000 on hand, respectively.
