BOSTON (AP) — Republican candidate for governor Charlie Baker has taken a fundraising lead.

As of June 30, Baker had more than $1.1 million in his campaign account after raising just under $400,000 during June.

Democrat Steven Grossman had the second most in his campaign account with nearly $932,000 according the state Office of Campaign and Political Finance. Grossman raised about $150,000 in June.

Fellow Democrat Martha Coakley came in third with about $490,000 left in her campaign account, having collected about $172,000 in June.

Another Democratic candidate Don Berwick appeared to get a bounce from his strong third place finish in his party’s state convention. He raised nearly $156,000 in June, bringing his total to nearly $225,000.

Baker’s Republican opponent Mark Fisher raised less than $3,000 in June, finishing with about $4,400 in his account.
