2018 Election

Incumbent AG Has Raised More Than Six Times as Much as the Challenger

Attorney General Steve Marshall takes an overwhelming financial advantage into the final month of the campaign as he seeks his first full term in the office.

The Republican incumbent raised $224,700 last month, bringing his total in itemized cash contributions since the campaign began last year to $2.92 million, according to reports filed this week with the Alabama Secretary of State’s Office.

Democrat Joseph Siegelman collected $92,673 in cash during September to raise his overall total to $445,276.

The national Republican Attorney Generals Association Action Fund in Washington was by far Marshall’s biggest benefactor, contributing $735,000. Siegelman’s largest donor was North Alabama PAC of Huntsville, with $25,000.

Marshall was appointed attorney general last year after then-Attorney General Luther Strange was picked to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated when Sen. Jeff Sessions became U.S. attorney general.

Here are contributions of $5,000 or more to each candidate.
