1,000 Contributions

We hit a major milestone this week.

I’m thrilled to announce my campaign has received more than 1,000 contributions. That’s double what Governor Ivey has. It’s a big deal to me, but what make this so special is nearly all of my contributions are from real Alabamians, actual voters. These are small business owners, hardworking people, and they are tired of the culture of corruption at the Capitol.

Now, there is one area I am behind in fundraising and that is PAC contributions. There are special interest groups in Montgomery that don’t want change.  

We have roughly 90 days before the Republican Primary, and I’m going to need your help if we’re going to bring the change we know Montgomery so desperately needs.

I’m ready to be the first mayor in Alabama’s history to become Governor.

It’s been a very busy week. On Tuesday, we had coffee with some of our local supporters at our new campaign office in Huntsville.  They got to see our space, talk to our team, and ask questions. Wednesday was a very long day. We left Huntsville for Birmingham at 4:00 am. I had interviews with all of the TV stations throughout the morning and afternoon. I also stopped by for a video segment where nothing was off the table. Man, those reporters sure ask a lot of questions! I had a great time, and I can’t wait to visit with all of those journalists again.

We spent part of Thursday in Birmingham and had an opportunity to speak to their Rotaract Club. It’s the largest of its kind in the country. A UAB student journalist sat down with me after the event and interviewed me about the election. Word is spreading across our college campuses about the Battle For Governor campaign.

After Birmingham, we set out for Baldwin County for an evening event. We plan to spend the next several days in south Alabama doing media interviews and meeting with local leaders and residents. Every time I visit this part of the state, I come across Alabamians that tell me I have their full support. It means a lot. I want to thank everyone that has donated their time or their money to help us reach the point that we’re at. I could not have made it this far without you.
