BALTIMORE (AP) — Republican gubernatorial nominee Larry Hogan has more than three times as much campaign cash on hand than his Democratic rival, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown — but it’s an edge that’s almost certain to evaporate.
That’s because Hogan is relying on public campaign financing, which gave him a lump-sum payment of $2.6 million from the state’s public financing fund. But, unlike Brown, he’s barred from raising additional funds between now and the November election.READ MORE: Baltimore School Board Approves $1.39B Budget Thursday
