CD6 Candidates Reveal Cash-On-Hand // John Delaney Raised $767K & Loaned Himself $1.25 Million

UPDATE: The Baltimore Sun's John Fritze provides a decent snapshot of where the CD6 candidates stand on money right now: 
BALTIMORE SUN: Democratic congressional candidate John Delaney outraised state Sen. Rob Garagiola by more than three-to-one and then loaned himself an additional $1.3 million this year, giving the Potomac banker a significant financial advantage in the competitive 6th Congressional District.

With less than two weeks to go before the April 3 primary, Delaney reported raising $767,709 from contributors before the personal loan, campaign finance reports filed with Federal Election Commission at midnight Thursday showed. Garagiola raised $246,452 over that same period. Delaney reports having $410,997 in the bank, compared with $167,909 for Garagiola....

Bartlett raised $222,799, spent $244,201 and, according to the report, has $639,021 in cash on hand -- though that number does not line up with Bartlett's past reports. Campaign aides were not immediately available to explain the larger-than-expected cash-on-hand number.

None of Bartlett's competitors in the GOP primary came close to his total. The next-best number came from state Sen. David Brinkley, who raised $22,060. Lawyer Robin Ficker did not raise any money but reported loaning himself $117,977. Of that, he spent $22,931.
