Saqib Ali Announces 2014 Run for State Legislature on Facebook // Former Delegate Seeks Office in District 39

UPDATES: The Facebook post has now been taken down. Also, I just noticed that the message below doesn't specify a run for State House or State Senate. Hmm.

Lastly, it is worth noting that there doesn't appear to be any campaign finance activity from Saqib Ali yet. That means he will likely be starting his fundraising from scratch. More on this story soon!

A Maryland Juice source has tipped us off to a notable post on former Delegate Saqib Ali's Facebook page.  Through a message sent via mobile phone, Ali announced, "I'll be running for a seat in Maryland's State Legislature from Maryland's 39th District in 2014" (see image below).

District 39 is currently represented by State Senator Nancy King (who defeated Saqib Ali in a 2010 Democratic Primary), and three incumbent Delegates: Charles Barkley, Kirill Reznik and Shane Robinson. Notably, to my knowledge, none of the incumbents has announced they are retiring.

Since the most recent campaign reports just got posted, I thought it might be interesting to take a look and see how much money the incumbents had in the bank.

Sen. Nancy King
  • 2012: Raised $31,815
  • 2013 Cash on Hand: $49,214

Del. Charles Barkley 
  • 2012: Raised $37,000 
  • 2013 Cash on Hand: $59,631

Del. Kirill Reznik
  • 2012: Raised $20,101
  • 2013 Cash on Hand $28,592

Del. Shane Robinson
  • 2012: Raised $3,030
  • 2013 Cash on Hand: $2,123
