BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts state Treasurer Steve Grossman says his second campaign for governor has more than $1 million in the bank at the beginning of February.

The Democrat says the money expands a significant financing lead among his opponents to succeed outgoing Gov. Deval Patrick.

Grossman said Saturday that his campaign cash on hand includes January contributions.

Grossman and Attorney General Martha Coakley are considered among the top tier Democratic candidates for governor.

Like Coakley, Grossman hasn’t won every race, including an unsuccessful campaign for governor in 2002.

Five Democrats running for governor. They include Newton pediatrician Don Berwick, former federal Homeland Security official Juliette Kayyem and former Wellesley Selectman Joseph Avellone.

Former gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker and Shrewsbury business owner Mark Fisher are seeking the Republican nomination.

Two independents candidates, Jeffrey McCormick and Evan Falchuk, are also in the mix.
