The Senate chamber.

The Senate chamber.

Our eighth monthly roundup of candidates for General Assembly is hopefully complete through the June 24 primary. The Feb. 25 filing deadline has passed, as has the Feb. 27 withdrawal deadline, and the March 4 deadline for the major parties to fill open ballot positions when no one has filed.

As we did last month, we include campaign fundraising totals from 2013 filed with the State Board of Elections in January. The next campaign finance reports are due April 15.

We have tried to list every candidate who has filed or filed and withdrawn. We have added figures for Cash on hand, amount Raised in 2013, and Loans or Debts when significant.

Each district is listed by county and, in most cases, incumbents (in parentheses) with their status.

The districts reflect new district lines, which have placed some incumbents into a different district. Each legislative district has one senator and three delegates, often split into subdistricts of one or two delegates. Many of the subdistricts were changed in the last redistricting, and voters are often finding out about this for the first time.

With more than 540 candidates and incumbents and so many fundraising numbers, there are likely to be some omissions and errors. Please email any needed corrections to Len Lazarick, Len@MarylandReporter.com.

Some unopposed and many not returning

Seven incumbent state senators have no opposition in either the primary or the general election, but only one delegate and one candidate for delegate face no opponent. Forty-three (43) current members of the Senate and House of Delegates will not be returning to their seats; 23 are running for other offices; 20 are retiring.

All of these are listed by district below, but here are lists that group them together.

AFFIDAVIT OF LIMITED CONTRIBTUTIONS: “In lieu of filing a detailed campaign finance report, a political committee may file the Affidavit of Limited Contributions and Expenditures if the committee did not spend or receive more than $1,000 in the aggregate, exclusive of the filing fee, within a campaign finance reporting period. Please note, the Affidavit does not relieve the committee of any future reporting requirements and must be renewed every reporting period.”

“Once the political committee does exceed the $1,000 threshold, it must file a detailed campaign finance report at the subsequent filing period.” (Summary Guide, page 56)
