From Cecil Times —–
Incumbent Cecil County Sheriff Barry Janney, while facing two challengers in the Sept. 14 Republican primary, appears to be conserving his considerable campaign funds for a general election race against the winner of the Democratic primary for Sheriff.
Janney raised $21,990 from January through August 10, plus he raised another $25,250 in 2009, for a total of $47,240, according to campaign finance reports filed with the state Board of Elections. Janney also had a carry-over balance from his last election campaign fund of $15,895, giving him a cumulative total of $63,135 available for this year’s election season.
But Janney’s fundraising falls short of the total raised by Democrat Chris Sutton, who raised $27,816 from January until August 10, on top of his 2009 fundraising of $38,313, for a total of $66,129, according to campaign finance reports filed with the state. Sutton is facing a spirited challenge for the Democratic nomination for Sheriff from Robert “Skip” DeWitt.
