Massachusetts Incumbents Raise Far More in Campaign Cash than Challengers

BOSTON (AP) — Incumbency has its benefits — chief among them the ability to raise money hand over fist compared to the competition.

From Beacon Hill to Capitol Hill this year, those already in power have demonstrated the ability to rake in millions more in campaign donations than their challengers.

Nowhere is that money gap more lopsided in Massachusetts than in the state’s two top political contests — the races for governor and U.S. senator.

Despite having already spent millions on his re-election effort, Republican Gov. Charlie Baker is heading into the final weeks of the campaign with millions more at his disposal compared to Democratic challenger Jay Gonzalez.

The same is true of Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whose campaign coffers far exceed those of her GOP opponent, Geoff Diehl.
