MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Birmingham attorney Luther Strange has raised more money in the past three months than any candidate - Republican or Democrat - in the race for Alabama's attorney general.

Strange is challenging incumbent Attorney General Troy King in the June 1 Republican Primary. The candidates were required to file campaign finance reports Monday showing contributions and expenditures since the last report in January.

Strange's report showed he had received $354,011 in contributions to $149,166 for King.

Of the three candidates in the Democratic Primary, Montgomery attorney James Anderson had received $146,706, Birmingham attorney Giles Perkins $99,361 and Mobile attorney Michel Nicrosi $48,608.

King's campaign account ended the reporting period with a balance of $290,117.
