Outside spending in Senate race tops $1.25m

BOSTON — Spending by outside groups in Massachusetts’ special U.S. Senate election has topped $1.25 million, with the largest amount going to support Democratic candidate Edward Markey.

The biggest spender in the race so far is the League of Conservation Voters, a national environmental advocacy group based in Washington, D.C. The group has already reported pumping more than $545,000 into its efforts to help elect Markey, according to an Associated Press review of reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
