Post, 29 Jan 2010 (Wiggins & Hernandez).
Rushern L. Baker III, who is planning a third run for county executive next year, raised more than $210,000 last year, the most of any of the candidates vying for Prince George's County's top job.

Baker's likely opponent, State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey (D), raised about $56,000 last year and has $114,000 cash on hand. Included in Ivey's list of contributors was President Obama's nominee for attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., who donated $4,000 in November. Ivey served a year under Holder as an assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia from 1990 to 1994.

Another probable candidate for county executive, Sheriff Michael Jackson (D) [Comment], raised less than $2,000 last year, but he has the most cash on hand, $231,000.

A financial report for County Executive Jack B. Johnson (D) was not available from the Maryland State Board of Elections on Tuesday.
