Byrne, Davis tops in gubernatorial campaign funds

Montgomery, AL – - New campaign finance reports show former
two-year college Chancellor Bradley Byrne has raised more
contributions than any other Republican candidate for governor,
with $2.6 million.
U.S. Rep. Artur Davis is the top fundraiser among the Democrats
with nearly $2.2 million, but that includes $1 million transferred
from his old congressional account.
Greenville businessman Tim James has generated the most money
overall. His Republican campaign has pulled in about $4 million -
largely through $2 million in a personal loan to his campaign and
$700,000 in loans from supporters.
All the candidates for governor had to file campaign finance
reports Monday with the secretary of state.
