Anne Arundel Primary for County Executive Was Most Expensive in County History




    The Anne Arundel County Republican primary for county executive was the most expensive in county history.


    Laura Neuman and Steve Schuh spent $2.4 million, The Capital reported. That's double what all seven candidates, Democrats and Republicans combined, spent in Anne Arundel's last primary for county executive in 2006.

    Schuh won the June GOP primary with 54 percent of the vote. He outspent Neuman by $600,000.

    The newspaper reported that Schuh spent $1.5 million in the last 19 months. Neuman spent nearly $900,000 since she started fundraising in May 2013.
