Birmingham businessman Stanley Adair, who is running for U.S. Senate in the 2020 Republican primary, reported a total of $283,313 in fundraising for the third quarter of the election cycle.

All Federal candidates are required to report their earning quarterly to the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Of the $283,313 raised, $148,892 came from individual donations while $134,421 came from Adair himself. The remaining, $4,500, came from a loan to the campaign.

Adair spent $284,367 in the third quarter, leaving only $3,446 cash-on-hand with the above loan to pay back.

In a poll released last month, Adair polled poorly compared to his competitors. Adair tied with Arnold Mooney for last place, with 1%. Tommy Tuberville leads the poll, with Roy Moore, Bradley Byrne and John Merrill following behind him.

Whoever wins the Republican primary in March 2020 will likely face off against sitting U.S. Democratic Senator Doug Jones in the general election in November of 2020.
