Baker campaign: More than $500,000 raised in past year

Jonathan Mummolo

Former Del. Rushern L. Baker III, a candidate for Prince George's County Executive, raised more than $550,000 for his campaign since last January -- enough to retire campaign debts and leave Baker with more than $300,000 cash on hand, according to a statement released by his campaign Wednesday morning.

Baker got more than 500 contributions from individuals who made donations of less than $300, his statement said.

"I am both thrilled and humbled by the contributions I've received, especially at a time when many hard-working families throughout the county are facing economic hardship," Baker said in a statement. "The fight for positive change in Prince George's County starts with everyday people, like the 500 that have signed on so far, believing that together we can make a difference in what promises to be a long, hard battle."

Wednesday is campaign finance reporting day in Maryland, and the State Board of Elections will be updating its Web site throughout the day with reports from candidates. Stay tuned for updates.

"Baker got more than 500 contributions from individuals who made donations of less than $300, his statement said." He also got one contribution of $200,000 at the filing deadline from 'County 1 Now.' There's nothing on the net about them but they share and address with this company: http://www.bluechiptitle.com/
