The election of Massachusetts' next governor won't happen until next November, but candidates for the state's top political office are already busily stockpiling money.

    Democratic state Treasurer Steven Grossman has the most cash on hand in his account, more than $847,000, but Republican Charlie Baker has been pulling in contributions at a faster clip recently, outpacing all other GOP and Democratic candidates in the past two months.

    Baker ended November with more than $263,000 in his account. A second Republican candidate Mark Fisher had about $45,000.

    Of the Democratic candidates, Attorney General Martha Coakley had the second most in her account at the end of November with $285,273, followed by Juliette Kayyem with nearly $223,000, Don Berwick with about $155,000 and Joseph Avellone with more than $88,000.
