Steve Marshall raises nearly $130,000 for Attorney General race

In his bid to keep his post, appointed incumbent Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has raised nearly $130,000 in donations so far, barely outpacing his nearest competitor, former US Attorney Alice Martin, who was also a former chief deputy in the Attorney General’s Office.

Marshall is seeking re-election to the post to which he was appointed by former Gov. Robert Bentley after now-Sen. Luther Strange gave up his post to go to the US Senate.

Marshall received all of his $129,000 in donations from individual donors, businesses and PACs. None of the donations met the “major contribution” threshold. He also loaned himself $15,000, leaving his campaign account with  $128,102.41 after some expenditures.

Martin, Marshall’s closest challenger, has raised more than $100,000 in donations so far. She also loaned her campaign $100,000, leaving her war chest total at $202,957. Her largest individual donor, who gave a donation of $25,000, was Marshall Schreeder from Huntsville.

Marshall was the district attorney of Marshall County, Alabama, before being appointed by Bentley in February to replace Strange. He appointed the special prosecutor who oversaw the investigation that led to Bentley’s resignation and pleading guilty to two misdemeanor campaign finance violations.
