Just days before the January 2022 campaign finance reporting deadline, Bowie Mayor Tim Adams, a wealthy businessman and one of two candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for comptroller, dumped more than $1.8 million of his own money into his campaign coffers. It put him slightly ahead of his opponent, Del. Brooke E. Lierman (D-Baltimore City), a dogged fundraiser, in cash on hand. Six months later, Adams hasn’t added a dime of his own money to his campaign account, while Lierman has continued to raise money steadily, except when she was banned from doing so during the three-month General Assembly session. Five weeks before the July 19 primary, she now has the fatter war chest.
