Craig Zucker to Report Over $50,000

Our spies tell us that District 14 Delegate hopeful Craig Zucker will be reporting over $50,000 in cash on hand in his campaign fund. Zucker lost the 2002 Delegate primary to Anne Kaiser by just 327 votes and has kept his account open ever since. Zucker is Comptroller Peter Franchot's Deputy Chief of Staff and knows his way around both Montgomery County and Annapolis. We hear that Zucker's contributions have come from a mix of business, labor and individual donors.

MPW picked Zucker as the early leader for a potential open Delegate seat in District 14 way back in August. It appears that Delegate Herman Taylor is challenging Congresswoman Donna Edwards, creating a potential opening for other Delegate candidates. Zucker is showing impressive strength eight months before the primary that will be hard for other hopefuls to overcome.
