    The Money Game: the latest campaign-finance figures in Baltimore's legislative district races
    The most recent round of campaign finance reports for Baltimore City's 12 legislative-district races – a Senate and House race in each of the six districts - were due late May at the Maryland State Board of Elections. The mass of new data reveals who's betting how much on the 46 candidates vying to fill six Senate seats and 10 House seats, and how those candidates are investing in the hopes of victory. The races to watch are the June 24 Democratic primaries, since the victors are virtually assured gaining office in a city where Democrats' voter-registration numbers dominate local politics. Not all of the candidates have complied with the filing deadline, but those who did reported raising a total of nearly $500,000 and spending about $730,000 between Jan. 9 and May 20. The winners' names will be on the general-election ballot on Nov. 4, where some of them face Republican, third-party, and independent candidates. The victors in those contests will be sworn in as elected officials in Annapolis, joining the ranks of the Maryland General Assembly's 47 senators and 141 delegates with four-year terms to make their marks on behalf of their districts, the city, and the state. After the end of the legislature's session in April, City Paper analyzed the incumbents' accomplishments this year, providing a guide to their lawmaking records. What follows are analyses of the most recent campaign-finance reports, presented in the order of the most financially active district to the least. The data paint a detailed portrait of the contemporary electoral economy in Baltimore, showing how money is flowing in pursuit of local power this election season. 46th Legislative District: $126,841.09 raised and $234,543.85 spent by seven candidates The biggest-money contests are in this waterfront district, which is hosting a long-shot Senate challenge and hard-fought House race prompted by an open seat vacated by retiring state Del. Brian McHale, a veteran politician. The House victors will face Republicans Rodger D. Bedingfield, Joseph "Joh" Sedtal, and Duane Shelton in November's general election.
