Most GOP candidates lagging in fundraising race
BOSTON (AP) — Republican Charlie Baker is raising more money that Democrat Martha Coakley in the Massachusetts governor’s race, but other statewide GOP candidates aren’t doing nearly as well.
In the attorney general’s race, Democrat Maura Healey reported a balance of $122,000 in her campaign account as of mid-October — about a 10-to-one advantage over Republican John Miller, who had just under $12,000.
In the treasurer’s election, Democrat Deb Goldberg had about $314,000 in her account as of mid-October — almost a three-to-one dollar advantage over Republican challenger Mike Heffernan.
The two statewide Democratic incumbents — Secretary William Galvin and Auditor Suzanne Bump — have even wider fundraising leads.
Bump had about $133,000 compared with Republican Patricia Saint Aubin’s $31,000, while Galvin had $2.5 million compared with Republican David D’Arcangelo’s $6,000 balance.
