Massachusetts: Members of state congressional delegation ended last year with varying campaign totals

Members of Massachusetts all-Democratic congressional delegation ended 2014 with vastly different sums in their campaign war chests.
Top on the list is longtime 1st Congressional District Rep. Richard Neal, who reported more than $2.6 million in his account, followed by 4th District Rep. Joseph Kennedy III with $1.9 million.

Those with the smallest war chests included newly elected 6th District Rep. Seth Moulton with $37,299 and incumbent 9th District Rep. Bill Keating with $46,537.

Both had raised and spent considerably more–Moulton to defeat incumbent Rep. John Tierney and Keating to fend off a Republican challenger.

The lawmakers relied to varying degrees on political action committee donations.

About 80 percent of what Neal raised in the past two years came from PACs, compared to 11 percent for Moulton.
