“The Republican Governors Association continues to collect significant donations — up to $250,000 — from some of Massachusetts’ most wealthy residents (including the wife of a cabinet official) and corporations whose interests depend on” Gov. Charlie Baker’s (R) “administration. The RGA was a major funder of Baker’s 2014 victory in the governor’s race, spending about $11 million in an election he won by a razor-thin margin.” One of the biggest interests involved is pharmaceutical companies, which have donated “close to $1.5 million” since January, while in June, Baker “unveiled … a $500 million state biotech initiative.” (Boston Globe)
