Senator Cam Ward announced he was entering the race for the Place 1 seat on the Alabama Supreme Court last month and, Monday, he filed his first campaign finance report with Alabama’s Secretary of State. The report shows that Ward is off to a strong start and has, in just three weeks, raised almost as much money as his opponent raised in the totality of his last election effort.
Ward’s FCPA report shows that he raised $30,275 from donors across the state and transferred $90,000 from his State Senate campaign account. He ended the month with $109,512 in his Supreme Court campaign account.
“I am grateful for the outpouring of support I have received from across the state since I qualified to seek the Republican nomination for Place 1 on the Alabama Supreme Court,” Ward said. “Each day, as I travel across the state speaking with the hardworking men and women of Alabama, I feel the campaign gaining momentum. I am looking forward to seeing as many voters as possible on the campaign trail and to listening to their concerns, answering their questions and telling them about my judicial philosophy: to interpret the law as it is written, not to write new laws from the bench.”
The Alabama Retails Association’s PAC endorsed Ward last week.
