The close of the third quarter for campaign finance reporting is tonight at midnight. So if you’re planning on helping out your favorite House or Senate candidate in Maryland, today would be a very good day to do it. Much, much better than, say, tomorrow.
This reporting period will be crucial - it’s the last one before the end of the year. A good report this quarter will carry a campaign through the holidays and into 2016. A bad one - well, we don’t really want to even contemplate the possibility, right?
Candidates - you’re welcome. 10% commissions on today’s donations seem appropriate, hmmm?
