Maryland Governor's Race Has Clear Frontrunner in Fundraising

Some gubernatorial candidates released their fundraising numbers ahead of the State Board of Elections deadline of midnight tomorrow.

Democrat Wes Moore pulled in $4.8 million since declaring his candidacy in June. It is the most money ever raised by a first-time candidate for governor at this point in the race. Other Democrats, Tom Perez, John B. King and Jon Baron each took in more than $2 million. Comptroller Peter Franchot did not indicate how much money his campaign raised over the last year, but said he has $3.3 million on hand.

None of the Republican candidates for governor - Del. Daniel L. Cox, former state labor secretary Kelly Schulz and former state delegate Robin Ficker - have publicly released fundraising totals yet.

Maryland's primary is June 28.
