Money raised, spent in last campaign season outlined

March 14, 2011

The following is how much money was raised and spent by candidates for selected state and county offices in Washington County during the last campaign season.

The Herald-Mail compiled candidates’ revenues and expenditures for five required campaign-finance filing periods, roughly covering January 2010 to January 2011. In many cases, candidates — particularly incumbents — already had money in their campaign funds before they started raising or spending money in 2010.
