Alabama: GOP candidate seeks pledges to contribute, before state law allows fundraising

The Mobile Press-Register reports: Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim James has mailed out a letter encouraging "pledges" of financial support to his campaign, eight months before state law says fundraising can begin.

In a letter dated Aug. 20, the campaign says it is trying "to lay the groundwork early" for its 2010 campaign.

"We are obtaining numerous pledges of support, including financial support to build the war chest that will be needed for the 2010 election cycles," the letter says. "However, no financial 'pledge' can or will be collected or paid prior to one year from the date of the 2010 general election." -- Tim James seeks 'pledges' before start of fundraising - al.com
