Mary Windom outraises all other judicial candidates in latest FCPA reports


Mary Windom, Presiding Judge of the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals, outraised all other judicial candidates during the month of November according to legally required finance campaign reports available on the website of the Alabama Secretary of State.

Windom, a conservative Republican, reported $33,850 in contributions from 21 donors, making her the largest fundraiser of any judicial candidate in the state. She ended the month with $269,699.89 in her campaign account.

“I am so grateful for the outpouring of support I have received since launching my re-election campaign,” Windom said. “When I was elected to serve on the Court of Criminal Appeals, I promised that I would bring justice to victims of crime, protect the constitution and apply the law as it is written, not create new laws or legislate from the bench. I am proud that I have kept those promises and I will continue to do so.”

Windom was first elected to the appellate court in 2008 and has served as Presiding Judge since 2012. Prior to her first election, she served as an Assistant US Attorney and a Deputy Attorney General for the State of Alabama.

Windom’s name will appear on the Republican primary ballot on March 3, 2020.
