Anthony Brown’s Campaign Debts

Most of you may know that in 2014, Anthony Brown took out a $500,000 loan (legal under Maryland law) from the Laborers union in the waning days of the ill-fated gubernatorial campaign. He personally guaranteed that loan, and now, while he’s running for Congress, he’s also trying to pay off that loan. That’s not a good combination, as the Sun reports today…. Read more »

BREAKING: Ivey, Brown and Jawando #s

Ivey: raised $130K, COH $400K John Fritze: Glenn Ivey, the former Prince George’s County State Attorney, reports raising “nearly” $130,000 in his bid for the 4th Congressional District — way under the $275,000 he raised in Q2. That number is similar to what Brown raised in the second quarter — a figure that many, at the time, saw as disappointing…. Read more »

BREAKING/EXCLUSIVE: Delaney Endorsements

The Tuesday morning double dose thunderstorm has landed and it’s hitting hard. Tornadoes are possible. Get the kids into the storm cellar. This one’s a biggie: Multiple sources confirm to Maryland Scramble that Congressman John Delaney will be making endorsements in the four marquee MD races: US Senate, CD4, CD8 and the Baltimore mayoral contest. His endorsements, expected to be… Read more »

EXCLUSIVE: CD4 Fundraising Analysis

Attached is another side by side topline analysis of the filed and reported congressional candidates, this time for CD4. UPDATE: The Brown report is now available online, and I have updated the numbers to reflect this. The differences are minimal. Some comments below.

Brown: $122K In Q2

Anthony Brown raised $122,000 in Q2, $174K overall, and has $140,000 cash on hand, reports the Sun. There have been recent signals pointing to a low fundraising quarter for Brown: Aides released an internal poll in early July, which some observers saw as an effort to mitigate fallout from lower-than-expected fundraising. The Democrat was also among the last in the state… Read more »

Anthony Brown Poll

It’s an internal poll, so take this with the usual large grain of salt, but we have our first poll data from CD4. John Fritze has the details: Brown, who ran an unsuccessful campaign for governor last year, has support from 42 percent of respondents in the poll, compared with 20 percent for former Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Glenn… Read more »

CD4 Fundraising

Here’s a snapshot of the three top-tier CD4 candidates on Act Blue as of around 2:50 today.    One major candidate, Glenn Ivey, is not on Act Blue. He raised $117,000 in the first quarter, so it’s likely that he’s still far ahead of anyone else, unless he blew it all at the poker tables at Maryland Live. Also, Ingrid… Read more »

State Contributions

As promised, I have compiled a chart of the state level political contributions made by each candidate for Senate, CD4 and CD8. Only donations by individuals are counted here. It doesn’t purport to be an exact science - elected officials like Chris Van Hollen have donated large quantities of money through the DCCC, PACs and slates, but I didn’t want… Read more »

Hot Sheet

For those of us playing the home version of the game, things have gotten messy. So being spring, it’s time for a clean start with a fresh new scoresheet. Senate: Declared and Running: Donna Edwards, Chris Van Hollen Still Thinking About It: Elijah Cummings Finally Actually Thinking About It: Dutch Ruppersberger Probably Not This Time: John Sarbanes Likes To Torture… Read more »

Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland) announced her retirement, a wave of political frenzy has unfolded, with several state politicians announcing their intentions to run for Congress. Go read it. One teensy little bone to pick with… Read more »
