Watch­dog group re­leases study on cam­paign costs

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

A gov­ern­ment watch­dog group has re­leased a re­port on how much it costs to run a cam­paign for state leg­isla­tive of­fices.

Com­mon Cause Mary­land re­leased an anal­y­sis of fundrais­ing to­tals from the 2014 elec­tion cy­cle on Mon­day.

It found that state se­na­tors av­er­aged about $290,000 in cam­paign con­tri­bu­tions from 2011 to 2014. That’s com­pared to a nearly $80,000 av­er­age for del­e­gates.

Fifteen suc­cess­ful state Se­nate can­di­dates each raised more than $250,000. In the state House, 28 can­di­dates raised more than $150,000.
