Somehow, state treasurers always seem to be good fundraisers. That's true of Delaware's Jack Markell, who has $2.1 million in campaign funds ahead of the September 9 Democratic primary for governor.
Markell's total is about quadruple the $530,000 held by his primary opponent, Lt. Gov. John Carney Jr. Bill Lee, the likely Republican nominee, trails in third, with only $168,000 cash on hand.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
