Maryland’s candidates for governor, doing everything in their power to reach undecided voters in a heated primary season, combined to spend more than $5.3 million in new television, radio and online advertisements in the weeks leading up to early voting, new campaign finance reports show. Both the Democratic and Republican nominating contests to replace outgoing Republican Gov. Larry Hogan are coming down to the wire. One week of early voting began Thursday, and more than 90,000 voters had turned in mail-in ballots as of Friday.
