Democratic candidate Doug Jones raised a total of $11.5 million in the Senate special election through Nov. 22, while Republican Roy Moore totaled $5.2 million. Donors from outside the state funneled millions of dollars into the election, going mostly to Jones.

 
Roll Call previously analyzed the fundraising efforts by both candidates Oct. 1 through Nov. 22, the data that includes the time since Moore was accused of inappropriately pursuing teenage girls when he was in his 30s. Moore has denied the allegations. Both candidates relied heavily on spending in that last period outside the state, but Jones received more contributions from within Alabama.
