Baker Says He's Raised $500K For Governor Race

Republican Charles Baker says he's raised another $500,000 for his gubernatorial campaign.

The former Harvard Pilgrim Health Care chief said in a statement Monday the money he raised in October appears to be a record for any gubernatorial candidate in a non-election year.

The Baker campaign has now raised more than $1 million in less than 100 days. It claims more than 3,500 individual donors.

Convenience store owner Christy Mihos is challenging Baker for the GOP nomination.

Gov. Deval Patrick is alone among Democrats as he seeks re-election, while Treasurer Timothy Cahill is challenging him as an independent.

Patrick had a big-ticket fundraiser last month with President Obama that should boost his fundraising total.
