SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

For the second weekend in a row, Attorney General Martha Coakley spent time campaigning in Western Massachusetts.

Coakley, who is trying to earn the Democratic nomination for governor, spent part of her day at the atrium of the Classical High Condominiums.

Coakley spoke with residents there about the importance of the arts, as well as her plans should she become governor.

Saturday her top Democratic opponent, State Treasurer Steve Grossman, announced he passed the $1 million mark in fundraising.

Coakley said there are more important things than money raised.

"This race is going to be about ideas, grassroots organizing, about who is going to be the best person to lead Massachusetts out of this economy as it turns around and accomplish what we need," said Coakley. "I think all the candidates will be competitive. I think what voters really care about is what do you have to say, what have you done, what are you going to do for Massachusetts moving forward?"

Coakley told CBS 3 that she believes Western Mass voters are very passionate and care a great deal about the race for governor.
