Alabama Lt. Gov. Will Ainsworth had an ending campaign balance of $1,438,743.70 after his re-election last year, according to his 2022 annual report filed with the Alabama Secretary of State's Office.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall had an ending campaign balance of $226,812.56 after his re-election last year, according to his annual report filing.

Campaign committees are allowed to transfer funds from one campaign committee for one office to another campaign for a different office if the two committees are for the same person, according to the Alabama Secretary of State's Office.

State law limits lieutenant governors, attorneys general and governors to only serving two consecutive terms. 

Gov. Kay Ivey, Ainsworth and Marshall are all beginning their second consecutive full term in office and won't be able to run for re-election to the same office again in 2026.

Ainsworth told 1819 News on Wednesday that "we are 100% focused on giving parents real choice in how their children are educated, ensuring every Alabamian who wants a good job can get a good job, and keeping our state the nation's most welcoming for military service members and veterans."  

"Any decisions about our future are still years away," he added.

Ainsworth didn't have a Republican primary opponent in 2022. He defeated Ruth Page-Nelson, a Libertarian, in the general election.

Marshall told 1819 News, "I have nothing to say about any possible plans for other elected office."  

"My entire focus is on being the Attorney General of Alabama," Marshall continued. "I'm grateful for the opportunity I have been given by the people of this state to continue to serve in this position and am singularly focused on my responsibilities as AG."

Marshall defeated Harry Still III in the Republican primary and Wendell Major, a Democrat, in the general election last year.
