O'Malley Takes In $1 Million For Re-Election, Aide Says
Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) and Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) raised more than $1 million last night at their largest fundraiser since their 2006 election, an aide said.
Tickets to the event at Silo Point, a newly renovated historic building in Baltimore, started at $4,000. The minimum price of admission was $250.
O'Malley and Brown have done some fundraising during their 18 months in office, but last night's event was the largest single-night take for their re-election effort in 2010.
As of January, the last time fundraising reports were due, O'Malley and Brown reported nearly $1.2 million sitting in three accounts: two that they maintain separately and a third joint account.
In a "reminder" e-mail to supporters about the event Friday, the governor and lieutenant governor ticked off some of what they see as the accomplishments of their first 18 months in office, including the allocation of $741 million for public school construction and "nation-leading reforms" to stem home foreclosures.
"But we need your help to make sure this progress continues, so join us on Tuesday, July 22, for a celebration of Maryland," the e-mail said.
