…[Republican candidate Kelly] Schulz’s coffers pale in comparison with those of top-tier Democratic candidates, including author and former nonprofit chief executive Wes Moore, whose campaign reported $4.8 million; State Comptroller Peter Franchot, who raised $1.1 million and has $3.3 million on hand; former U.S. labor secretary Thomas Perez, who reported raising $2.7 million; former U.S. education secretary John B. King Jr., who took in $2.5 million; and Jon Baron, a former nonprofit executive who refused to take money from lobbyists or corporations and raised about $420,000 but had $1.7 million on hand due to a $1.7 million loan he gave to his campaign.

In a crowded field, a bigger bank allows candidates to introduce themselves to voters and to get their message out to them.

Like Schulz, Moore, King and Baron are first-time candidates.
