Cardin Sitting on $2.6 Million
Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin's campaign said this morning that it had raised nearly $1 million in the first three months of the year and finished the quarter with $2.6 million on hand.
The Baltimore-area Democrat's quarterly haul is smaller than that of the leading Republican, Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele, who raised $1.3 million during the period, according to an internal memo shared with The Washington Post yesterday. But Cardin, who entered the race several months before Steele, has about $900,000 more cash on hand, according to figures provided by the two campaigns.
All other candidates in crowded field of mostly Democrats lag significantly behind in money.
Cardin spokesman Oren Shur said his candidate's fundraising prowess demonstrates that voters "know Ben Cardin is the best candidate to beat the Bush-Steele team next November."
