Campaign Season Enters Final Stretch
With early voting just a few weeks away in some states Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are working the campaign trail.

BOSTON (AP) — Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is continuing to rake in hefty donations from Massachusetts supporters.

Recently filed Federal Election Commission reports show Clinton has scooped up more $13.5 million from Bay State backers. That’s more than GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has raked in just under $1 million.

Overall contributions in Massachusetts to Democratic candidates have far outpaced donations to Republicans.

Of the $25.3 million donated to all presidential candidates throughout the election so far, $21.5 million has gone to Democratic candidates, while $3.7 million has gone to Republicans.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has raised about $84,000 in Massachusetts. Green Party candidate Jill Stein, a resident of Lexington, has raised just $22,000.

Massachusetts places fifth on the list of top donor states, behind California, New York, Texas and Florida.
