Ulman, Mizeur report fundraising totals

PoliticsElectionsAnthony BrownKen UlmanMartin O'Malley

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, considered one of the top prospects for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2014, reported that he raised more than $1.1 million last year -- almost keeping pace with Attorney General Douglas M. Gansler.

Ulman also reported that his campaign account has $2.1 million in cash on hand. The county executive said his 2012 fundraising achieved his goal of exceeding his fundraising the previous year. Gansler, who previously reported that he raised $1.2 million in 2012, has $5.2 million in the bank -- largely because he ran for re-election without opposition in 2010.

Meanwhile, Del. Heather Mizeur, a Montgomery County Democrat who is considering a dark-horse run for governor, reported that she collected  $248,671 in 2012, leaving her with more than $380,000 in cash on hand. 

Mizeur's total puts her far behind Ulman and Gansler, but she cast her totals in a positive light. The lawmaker said that in the 10 weeks between Nov. 1 and Jan. 9, the close of the reporting period, she raised $155,671. Mizeur's campaign compared that with Gov. Martin O'Malley's performance in the equivalent period before his 2010 re-election -- saying that the governor raised only $93,976 in those weeks. 

As of about noon, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown -- also considered a leading potential candidate -- had not reported his fund-raising totals. The deadline for filing fund-raising reports for 2012 is midnight.
