Arnold Mooney announces that he has raised over $300,000 in 30 days

Wednesday, State Representative Arnold Mooney’s, R-Indian Springs, campaign announced that he had raised over $300,000 in 30 days in his campaign for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Doug Jones.

“In just 30 days since the legislative session ended and fundraising began in earnest, Arnold raised enough money to show he’s going to be a force to be reckoned with and received some huge endorsements. We’re excited by the momentum,” said Jordan Gehrke, a spokesman for the campaign.

Arnold Mooney has been endorsed by: U.S. Senator Mike Lee, R-Utah, conservative talk show hosts Mark Levin and Erick Erickson, Duck Dynasty star Al Robertson, and the Senate Conservatives Fund.

Mike Lee is considered to be one of the most conservative members of the United States Senate. He won his first race in an upset in 2010, and has a long record of endorsing successful conservative outsiders for Senate, including Senator Ted Cruz.

The Senate Conservatives Fund was founded by Senator Jim DeMint and has supported insurgents like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Josh Hawley.

Mooney is the first candidate to announce his fundraising totals this quarter.

“While better-known, establishment candidates Bradley Byrne and Tommy Tuberville are expected to report they raised over a million dollars each this quarter, remember: Arnold Mooney did all of his fundraising in less time, and he raised it at a faster pace,” said Gehrke.

Mooney joins a crowded GOP field that includes: Congressman Bradley Byrne, Secretary of State John Merrill, former Chief Justice Roy Moore, businessman Stanley Adair, and former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville. State Auditor Jim Zeigler has formed an official exploratory committee to study entering the race. More candidates are expected to announce in coming days.

Jones is widely considered to be the most vulnerable incumbent in the United States Senate on the 2020 ballot.

The Republican Primary is March 3rd.
