2014 Election is over, but fundraising goes on

The Decatur Daily reports: Alabama's 2014 elections are in the books, but fundraising is not over for some elected officials and those who had hoped to be elected.

State law gives candidates 120 days after elections to collect money from individuals and political action committees to cover debts, including repayment of loans to their campaigns. ...

Candidates can loan themselves money regardless of their account balances. Stewart said a confident candidate could use a loan knowing they're going to get the money back to get a jumpstart on fundraising in four years.

"Once one election is over, candidates are immediately thinking about the next one," Stewart said. "(Having additional money) would be the most desirable situation from the candidate's point of view." -- Fundraising for ?14 politicians ongoing - Decatur Daily: News
