October 26, 1998|By From staff reports

TOWSON -- To say Republican John J. Bishop's campaign to unseat Democratic County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger hasn't caught fire would be an understatement, considering their latest campaign finance reports.

In the period between Aug. 31 and Oct. 18, the reports show Bishop raised $1,495, and has $1,730 left in the campaign's final week. Overall, he has raised $10,700.

Ruppersberger raised $22,196 in the same reporting period and spent $173,814. He has $527,000 in his kitty. Lacking strong opposition, he had said he would spend money to help other incumbents he has worked closely with, such as state Sen. Michael J. Collins, an Essex Democrat.
