Presidential Prospect: O’Malley Raised Nearly $500K In Campaign Contributions
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley has reported raising nearly $500,000 for his political action committee from January to June.
The Washington Post reports that O’Malley’s O’ Say Can You See PAC maintains three separate accounts, including a “non-federal” account that allows O’Malley to accept unlimited donations, but that a voluntary $10,000 limit has been put in place. Eleven donors gave $10,000.
The newspaper says a report filed with the Internal Revenue Service shows that $315,497 was solicited for the non-federal account.
The governor, who is considering a presidential run, gave money to two candidates in the early primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire. He gave $2,500 to Iowa Rep. Bruce Braley, who is running for U.S. Senate. He also gave $2,500 to Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, of New Hampshire.
