This race is a four horse race and one of the horses has pulled up lame. Anthony Brown had a terrible quarter. He continues to poll better than he should based purely on name recognition - and he might still win on this basis. But he’s going to have a hard time doing any serious media, as he has faltered badly both in money raised and in overspending. Glenn Ivey is set up nicely and so is Joseline Pena-Melnyk. Dereck Davis had his best fundraising quarter yet relative to the field, just edging out Pena-Melnyk for second place, and spending frugally. But whether it’s Ivey or Pena-Melnyk’s poll, Davis is lagging badly in actual support. I think the money reflects the race right now, with Brown having a decided edge in name recognition that might pull him through. But he’s not going to win this race on fundraising, at which he should have done vastly better.
