Gov. Larry Hogan (R) will report raising $4.85 million during the past year, according to a fundraising memo obtained Tuesday by Maryland Matters.
Added to the $584,000 that Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford (R) raised independently since January 2017, the Hogan-Rutherford campaign took in more than $5.4 million in the past 12 months. It had more than $9 million in the bank as of last week.
“With public polling putting your approval at 71 percent, and with a $9 million bank account, we could not ask to be in a stronger position entering 2018,” Tom Kelso, the campaign chairman, wrote in the memo to Hogan and Rutherford.
