Gov. Charlie Baker (R) “pushed his war chest to nearly $6 mil­lion through the end of June. That sum has been fueled by $1.8 mil­lion in dona­tions through the first half of 2017, in­clud­ing roughly 900 max­im­um con­tri­bu­tions of $1,000, the most al­lowed un­der state law.”

Baker has been rap­idly ex­pand­ing his base of well-heeled donors, col­lect­ing a quarter-mil­lion dol­lars this year from cor­por­ate CEOs, out-of-state ex­ec­ut­ives. … Nearly 1 of every 3 of his max dona­tions, or about 250 in total, came from people who didn’t give to the Swampscott ­Re­pub­lic­an dur­ing his 2014 run. In total, they’ve giv­en $256,000, and hail from a hodge­podge of fields, in­clud­ing health care, bank­ing, med­ic­al marijuana and horse ra­cing.” (Bo­ston Her­ald)
