(Montgomery, AL) – Today, the Alice Martin for Alabama Attorney General campaign announced that it has raised over $200,000 since jumping into the race just two weeks ago.
“Our message is hitting home with hard-working people across Alabama who want to see our government serve people not special interest,” said Martin. “For too long, Alabama has put up with a corrupt government that has protected the politicians. It is time to elect a leader who knows how to clean up corruption, end insider backroom deals, and apply the law fairly.”
Martin announced her campaign for Attorney General on June 13th and in only 17 days has collected over $200,000. With the first month’s filings complete, the race for Attorney General is wide open.
“It has been an incredible two weeks in our campaign, and I am encouraged by the support I have received from across the state,” said Martin. “We have had an amazing start, and are ready to do the work ahead of us. I look forward to the campaign and spreading our message of cleaning up corruption across Alabama.”
Currently, the Martin campaign has $202,957 cash-on-hand. Alice Martin is a Deputy Attorney General and previously served as Chief Deputy Attorney General, running the office for Luther Strange from 2015 until his move to the U.S. Senate. Under her leadership, resources of the public corruption unit were doubled and former Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard was convicted. Martin also previously served as a federal prosecutor for President Reagan and George H.W. Bush, and as United States Attorney for President George W. Bush. Seeing no effort to combat corruption in government, Martin established the North Alabama Corruption Task Force which obtained 140 federal corruption convictions and earned her a spot in Corporate Fraud Report’s list of the top ten prosecutors in the country.
