Campaign Booty

According to reports, Scott Brown has $4 million left over in his Senate campaign account. That would give him the second-biggest war chest in the Bay State -- behind only former congressman Marty Meehan, who just may be Brown's opponent when he faces re-election in 2012.

Brown's flood of donations came after the new year, and is not represented in the 2009 campaign-finance reports that I have been poring through.

Below I list every Massachusetts politician -- 37 of them -- who had at least a quarter-million dollars in a campaign account at the end of 2009. I include their current elected office (if any), and the office they are running for in 2010 (if any). For those whose terms are not up this year, I put their re-election year in parentheses. Those currently holding federal office have federal accounts, while the others have state committees (which cannot be used for a federal-office campaign).

If you think I missed anybody who should be on this list, let me know!
