AG Hopeful Tolman Off To Brisk Fundraising Start

Former Democratic state Sen. Warren Tolman is off to a brisk fundraising start in his bid to succeed Martha Coakley as state attorney general.

Tolman, who entered the race in November, reported raising more than $368,000 in December. That compares with nearly $33,000 raised in the same month by Clinton state Rep. Harold Naughton, a fellow Democrat and AG hopeful.

A third Democratic candidate, Maura Healey - a former top deputy to Coakley - reported raising more than $148,000 for December according to campaign finance records.

No Republicans have entered the race.

Tolman was the 1998 Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor and a 2002 candidate for governor. He's currently an attorney with the Boston law firm of Holland & Knight.

Coakley is running for governor, leaving an open race for her seat.
