Kratovil regains fundraising edge, expands cash lead over Harris

Maryland Rep. Frank Kratovil (D) narrowly outraised state Sen. Andy Harris (R) in the second quarter of the year, retaking the initiative after Harris had beaten him in the previous two quarters. Kratovil also expanded his substantial lead over Harris in cash on hand, giving him more resources to deploy in the four remaining months of the 1st district contest.

Kratovil reported to the Federal Election Commission that he took in $390,000 from April through June, bringing his total fundraising for the cycle to $1.8 million. He had $1.3 million on hand as of June 30. Harris, meanwhile, reported raising $371,000 for the quarter. He has taken in $1.5 million for the cycle and had $896,000 left in the bank at the end of June.

Before Harris can face Kratovil, he has to win the Sept. 14 Republican primary against businessman Rob Fisher, the founder of a cybersecurity firm. Fisher began his bid largely by self-funding his campaign and continued that trend in the 2nd quarter. He reported taking in $310,000 -- all but $10,000 of it from himself -- and had $239,000 on hand June 30.
