|Nebraska State Senate, District 29 (2008)|
Fulton's appointment in 2007 placed him in a gray area of the Nebraska Constitution with regards to term limits. The Nebraska Constitution states that senators can serve no more than two consecutive terms, but it fails to specify how a term is defined. Due to the lack of definition, it was initially uncertain whether he served a term from the time of his appointment in 2007 until his re-election in 2008. If the 2007-2008 period counted as a full term, Fulton would be ineligible to run for re-election in 2012. The Nevada Secretary of State sent a request for a formal opinion on the interpretation to the Attorney General's office. Ultimately, Fulton was termed out, and did not run in 2012.
In 2008, Fulton collected $119,579 in donations.
His five largest contributors in 2008 were:
|Nebraska Bankers Association||$3,150|
|Nebraska Chamber Of Commerce and Industry||$2,500|
|Nebraska Realtors Association||$2,000|
