Candidates can't raise funds during session

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Candidates for governor and other state
offices in 2010 were required to stop raising campaign money Monday
because of the special session of the Alabama Legislature on
Jefferson County's financial problems.

Most of the six Republicans and two Democrats seeking Alabama's
governor's office put notes up on their Web sites saying they could
not take contributions or had removed fundraising links from their
sites Monday. But at least two candidates continued to ask for
donations on their campaign Web sites at least for a time on
Monday.

Democratic candidate U.S. Rep. Artur Davis took down the
fundraising page on his Web site Monday afternoon. Republican
candidate Roy Moore's fund raising page was still on his Web site
Monday afternoon.
