(Team Cahill has informed me that they just deposited another $65,807 today for last month. That Brings their total up. However Baker and Tisei have still outraised all other candidates combined. - promoted by Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno)
The ticket of Charlie Baker and Richard Tisei raised $733,869 in the month of March according to the Office of Campaign and Political finance deposit reports as of last night. This figure includes approximately $592K raised by Charlie Baker and approximately $141K raised by Richard Tisei. With this total they have outraised all of the other declared candidates for governor and lieutenant governor combined.
The dynamic supposedly conservative duo of Tim Cahill and Paul Loscocco raised a combined total of $80,054. $75,631 of that total came from Tim Cahill's fundraising while Loscocco raised the balance. The $80,054 is less than the down ballot treasurer candidate Karyn Polito raised in March.
The Democratic team of Deval Patrick and Tim Murray raised a combined total of $444,177.61. The Patrick Committee raised $308K of that amount with Tim Murray raising the balance.
The Christy Mihos campaign raised $8,281, which does not include a deposit report for March 31, 2010 in which Mihos needed to deposit his convention fee. Expect that number to rise. Grace Ross has not filed deposit reports yet this month but her bank report shows $4,880 in deposits for the first half of the month. Dr. Jill Stein also has not filed deposit reports but her bank report for the first 15 days shows a total raised of $14,281 raised.
The total raised by all the candidates for LG and Governor that are not Charlie Baker and Richard Tisei was $551K This is $180K less than what Richard Tisei and Charlie Baker raised. The momentum is with Richard and Charlie. With Tim Cahill's recent missteps it is looking more and more like a two man race between Baker and Patrick this fall. In that two man matchup my money is on Baker.
