Campaign finance reports are out (not all of them yet…but some)…and both Oldham and Gibson have filed…so I thought this would be a good opportunity to update my report back in January. Here are the numbers reported:
|HC State’s Attorney||Starting Balance||Amount Raised||Amount Spent||Cash Balance|
|Kim Oldham (R)||$18,845.26||$7,423.00||$2,498.84||$23,769.42|
|Rich Gibson (D)||$22,638.04||$10,600.00||$4,864.24||$28,373.80|
Gibson raised the most cash…but also spent the most on the latest filing.
Gibson holds a slight advantage with cash on hand at the moment.
The Howard County Police Officers Association (HCPOA) donated $1,000 to Oldham…I thought that was noteworthy for this post. To my knowledge, they have not endorsed either candidate to this point (if I find out otherwise, I will update this post).
Neither candidate has a primary opponent.
Interested in diving into the details of the reports? Here is a link to find the campaign reports for any candidate: https://campaignfinancemd.us/Public/ViewFiledReports
More details coming soon…report filing deadline is the 22nd…so look for more posts on this topic around the 23rd or 24th of May.
