CandidateVerification
Priscilla Dunn (b.October 8, 1943) is a Democratic member of the Alabama State Senate, representing District 19. She was elected to the chamber after winning a special Democratic runoff election on June 30, 2009. No Republican candidate filed for the primary, so the Democratic runoff decided the election. The special election was called to fill the seat vacated by the federal conviction of Edward McClain on charges of conspiracy, mail fraud, bribery and money laundering.[1][2]

Biography

Dunn received a B.S. from Alabama State University and an M.A. from the University of Montevallo.

2009

The election for Seat 19 on the Alabama Senate was scheduled for August 18. However, no Republican qualified to run against Dunn in that election. Since Dunn's name was to be the only name on the ballot, and since Jefferson County was cash-strapped, Secretary of State Beth Chapman canceled the election, which resulted in Dunn winning the seat. The special election would have cost about $100,000.[7]

In 2010, Dunn raised $210,291 in contributions.[8]

Her four largest contributors were:
