Gloth Jr. and agreed to change it, officials acknowledged this week.

WASHINGTON -- To the victors go the spoils. To the incumbent lawmakers go campaign donations -- and lots of them. A review of the most recent campaign records filed by Marylanders running for the House and Senate shows that incumbents are far outstripping their challengers in raising money for their re-election bids.Even in the two contests where the challengers are regarded by party officials as most formidable -- in Maryland's 5th and 8th districts -- incumbents are sitting on campaign funds that dwarf those of their opponents.
