Warren Tolman, one of two Democratic candidates for attorney general, raised more money in June than not only his party rival, Maura Healey, but also the three Democrats running for governor.
Tolman, a former state senator, pulled in $207,000 last month — an impressive sum — compared to the $106,000 raised by Healey, a former assistant state attorney general, according to filings with the state’s Office of Campaign and Political Finance.
Attorney General Martha Coakley raised $173,000 in June, topping her two rivals for the Democratic nod for governor, Treasurer Steven Grossman and former Medicare and Medicaid chief Donald M. Berwick, the finance agency’s filings show.
Filings show that in June, Tolman spent $80,000 and ended the month with $893,000 in the bank. Healey spent $106,000 and ended last month with $485,000 in cash on hand.
Also running to succeed Coakley as the state’s top law enforcement official is Republican John B. Miller. In June, he raised $35,000, spent $20,000 and ended the month with $69,000 in the bank, according to state campaign finance records.
