AL Gov. Candidates Spend Big Bucks on Campaigns

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama candidates for governor have
lent their campaigns more than $5 million.

Campaign finance reports show Republican Tim James made the
biggest loan with $2 million. Republican State Treasurer Kay Ivey
is second at nearly $1.8 million. She's followed by Republican
Robert Bentley with $787,000. Four other candidates for governor
lent smaller amounts.

University of Alabama political scientist David Lanoue said the
loans help candidates show they are committed to their candidacies
and help them stand out in a crowded field.
