Board Of Elections Issues Guidance On Fundraising

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland State Board of Elections has issued guidance on fundraising during the legislative session, when it is banned for state lawmakers and statewide office holders.
    
The guidance released by the board Thursday says candidates who are not affected by the law can continue raising money, if the funds are deposited in his or her authorized campaign committee.
    
The issue is relevant in the governor's race, because Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's running mate, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, is not covered by the ban during the 90-day session, which begins Jan. 8.
    
Attorney General Doug Gansler, who also is seeking the Democratic nomination in the governor's race, is barred from raising money during session. His running mate, Del. Jolene Ivey, also cannot raise money.
