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.
