Campaign Finance Numbers – Howard County State’s Attorney – May 2018

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:

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.
