Recent fundraising by O'Malley lags Ehrlich

Aaron C. Davis

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) raised $267,000, or 37 percent of what former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr. (R) collected during the most recent 18-day reporting period.

Even before O'Malley's campaign released its numbers on Saturday, the Ehrlich campaign used its fundraising total of just over $725,000 to claim fresh momentum in the race.

The lopsided success for Ehrlich during the final, abbreviated reporting period before the Sept. 14 primary could provide a boost to the former Republican governor, even as he remains far behind O'Malley in overall fundraising.

O'Malley spent roughly $426,000 during the reporting period, leaving him with $6.5 million in cash on hand to Ehrlich's $2.5 million.

O'Malley crisscrossed Howard County on Saturday, knocking on doors with Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, shaking hands at a Panera Bread in Columbia, and stopping by an early voting location in Jessup.
