BOSTON—Massachusetts Democratic Party officials have filed a complaint with state campaign finance officials regarding potential violations of state law by Republican candidate for Attorney General James McKenna.

Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh asked the state's Office of Campaign and Political Finance Wednesday to investigate the lack of spending disclosures by McKenna's campaign and take any action it deems necessary.

State campaign finance records show McKenna, of Millbury, spent less than $1,600 in succeeding to become, apparently, the first candidate in Massachusetts political history to win a statewide nomination via a write-in campaign.

McKenna said in a statement Wednesday that the "Democratic machine" is upset he is on the ballot, and said his campaign broke no laws.
