Statewide candidates raised and spent about $33 million during last year's elections, a jump of about 9 percent from the 2010 campaign for governor.

A new review by the state Office of Campaign and Political Finance found candidates for governor in 2014 reported raising and spending a total of about $20 million.

That's a significant drop from the records set in 2006, the last time there was an open race for governor. During that campaign, gubernatorial candidates raised and spent a total of more than $40 million.

The winner of the 2014 race, Republican Charlie Baker, spent the most _ about $5.6 million _ followed by Democrat Martha Coakley, who reported spending $3.9 million.

That doesn't include the nearly $17 million spent by outside groups, including so-called super PACs.
