There are no official tallies yet, but state Attorney General Martha Coakley is apparently leading the pack in fundraising for the abbreviated U.S. Senate campaign.

  • Coakley has raised $2 million since entering the race at the beginning of September, her campaign spokeswoman said.
  • City Year co-founder Alan Khazei raised more than $1 million in the last two weeks, his spokesman said. Khazei said he did not take any money from political action groups or lobbyists.
  • Rep. Michael Capuano, D-Somerville, raised $300,000 dollars in the last two weeks, his campaign said.
  • Boston Celtics co-owner and venture capitalist Stephen Pagliuca raised about $200,000 over the last four or five days, according to his campaign spokesman. Pagliuca, whose worth is estimated at $400 million, is expected to finance much of his own campaign.
  • Republican contender and state Sen. Scott Brown said he raised $154,525 over 18 days of fundraising, from 900 donors.

The candidates have until Oct. 15 to report their official fundraising tallies and campaign spending to the Federal Election Commission.
