In governor’s race, a patchwork fundraising map

Republican Charlie Baker is leading every other candidate in the fundraising race for governor

BOSTON (AP) — Republican Charlie Baker is leading every other candidate in the fundraising race for governor, and his financial support is deeper across a wider swath of Massachusetts than any of his rivals.

A review of campaign finance records by The Associated Press shows Baker has received contributions of more than $50 from all but about 50 of the state’s 351 cities and towns.

The next closest candidate is Democrat Martha Coakley, who’s received similar contributions from all but about 90 communities.

The patchwork fundraising map of Massachusetts also shows Baker has received more than any other candidate, community by community, in large areas of central Massachusetts and north and south of Boston.

In some communities, Democrats Steve Grossman and Donald Berwick were the top fundraisers
