Scott Dawson, a newcomer to politics, raised the second highest amount among 2018 gubernatorial candidates since June 5th, the first month of the campaign.
Though he’s never sought political office, the well-known Alabama minister has raised $178,008, according to his campaign finance filings.
“As you know, this is my first race for office,” Dawson told Yellowhammer, adding:
I am humbled that people around this state are backing me and my vision to move Alabama forward. As I continue to listen and learn from people around this great state, I am convinced that this race is about so much more than one office. It’s about Alabama’s future.
After announcing his candidacy on the Rick & Bubba Show last month, Dawson launched his Listening to Alabama tour, stating that “True communication starts with listening to understand, not just to respond. I’m going to listen to understand the concerns of the people of Alabama.”
