Redistricting ballot committee raises less than $1,000

A committee set up to oppose Gov. Martin O’Malley’s new congressional resdistricting plan has told the State Board of Elections that it has raised less than $1,000 toward the Nov. 6 election.

Repeal the Gerrymander, a group chaired by Republican activist Antonio Campbell, thus does not have to file the detailed financial disclosure required for committees that reach that threshold.

The committee was among a handful that had filed its paper work hours before the close of business Friday. Campaign committees for ballot questions have until 11:59 p.m. to file.

Among those expected to file were the main committees involved in the battles over ballot questions on same-sex marriage, gambling expansion and the in-state tuition bill known as the Dream Act. No committee has been registered to support the governor's map.

The Sun reported last week that Campbell had said his group had not been raising money.
