State Auditor Jim Zeigler filed a campaign committee Tuesday to begin raising money for the 2018 governor’s race.
The first-term State Auditor said he was required to file because he passed the $1,000 legal threshold that requires filing due to “unsolicited campaign donations.”
Zeigler has yet to decide whether or not he will officially run for the positions, saying he will make a final decision following the special election for U.S. Senate.
“I have been blessed to do more than the other potential candidates despite my position of very little authority and staff, the state auditor’s office. From the governor’s office, I could stop business as usual in Montgomery,” said Zeigler of a potential run.
