Ulman Raises $1.14 Million in 2012

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman now has $2.13 million in available campaign cash, but trails at least one expected gubernatorial candidate.


Howard County Executive Ken Ulman announced Wednesday that he raised $1.14 million in campaign donations in 2012, giving him a total of $2.13 million.

The $1.14 million raised in 2012 is a slight increase from his 2011 total when he took in $1.06 million.

“I am humbled and grateful that so many people have chosen to support our vision for progress, economic growth, common sense and innovative solutions,” Ulman said in a statement. “I believe Maryland is the greatest state in the country, and I will continue to work hard to help us fulfill our potential.”

Ulman is considered by many to be a candidate for governor in 2014, as he cannot run for Howard County Executive again due to term limits.

Other Democratic candidates thought to be eyeing a run for governor in 2014 include Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Attorney General Doug Gansler and Del. Heather R. Mizeur of Montgomery County.

Gansler announced Tuesday he raised $1.2 million in 2012 and currently has $5.2 million in his campaign account, according to the Washington Post.

Mizeur reported that she collected $248,671 in 2012, giving her a total of more than $380,000 in cash on hand, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Brown has not announced their previous year fundraising totals yet, according to the Post.

Republican candidates considering a 2014 gubernatorial run include Blaine R. Young, president of the board of county commissioners of Frederick County; Harford County Executive David R. Craig; and Larry Hogan Jr., chairman of Change Maryland.

Annual campaign finance disclosure reports are due to the State Board of Elections on Wednesday.

I don't believe Maryland has ever had a minority Governor, and I know Ulman is and was deeply concerned about minority representation on the school board. Therefore, I'm quite certain that Ulman will practice what he preaches and support Mr. Brown's run for Gov. LOL

He's going to have to spend a lot of money to explain how it's OK that he bent over backwards to encourage dense development and then left it for the next guy to deal with the overcrowded schools that resulted from his actions.
