Ulman Not Raising Money During Session
Updated: Saturday, February 15 2014, 03:07 PM EST
Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown says his running mate in the governor's race won't be raising money during this year's legislation despite having been cleared to do so.
Brown wrote in an opinion piece published Saturday in The Washington Post that if he and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman are elected, they'd seek to change the law that allows Ulman to solicit campaign contributions.
Statewide officials and legislators are barred from raising money during the 90-day session. But elections officials ruled that the ban doesn't apply to Ulman because he's a county official.
Del. Jolene Ivey, the running mate of Brown's Democratic primary rival, Attorney General Doug Gansler, says in a statement that Brown had five weeks to put this issue to rest, but "he was nowhere to be found."
