Democratic Members Cash Out for Coakley

Democratic members, hoping to save their 60th vote in the Senate, are ante-ing up for Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley’s campaign, according to the latest fundraising reports on file.

Current and former House and Senate members chipped in more than $20,000 to Coakley on Jan. 12 and 13, according to 48-hour reports of contributions over $2,000, which candidates are required to file in the final weeks before the Jan. 19 special election.

Some of it likely came at the Washington, D.C. fundraiser Coakley attended on the 12th.

Among them: Sen. Tom Carper (Del.), who gave $5,000 through his political action committee, Sen. Kay Hagan (N.C.), who gave $2,500 via her PAC, and Sen. Maria Cantwell (Wash.) , who gave $2,000 from her campaign. Massachusetts delegation members Sen. John Kerry and Reps. Niki Tsongas and Ed Markey also gave $2,000 each.
