Hogan Still Boasts Robust War Chest; Shea Has More On-Hand Than Other Dems

Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) continues to sit on an eye-popping amount of campaign cash, according to campaign finance statements released Tuesday. After having to sit on the sidelines during the three-month General Assembly session, he took in a quick $1.2 million between mid-April and mid-May.

 

Of the nine Democratic candidates for governor, Baltimore attorney James L. Shea, the former managing director of the powerful Venable firm, reported the most cash on hand as of last week.
