O'Malley raises $1 million

July 23, 2008|By David Nitkin

Gov. Martin O'Malley raised more than $1 million last night for his re-election effort during a fundraiser in Baltimore, spokesman Rick Abbruzzese said.

O'Malley was first elected in 2006 and would appear on the ballot again in 2010. Maryland governors are prohibited from serving more than two terms.

Sitting governors typically are able to raise more money than challengers, and O'Malley's aggressive efforts at this stage in his term could be a deterrent to those considering running against him.

The governor's campaign account had a balance of $221,208 when his most recent finance report was filed in January.

FOR THE RECORD - A news digest item in some editions of yesterday's editions of The Sun included an incorrect figure for the January balance in Gov. Martin O'Malley's campaign account. The balance was $909,737.
