Fletcher Re-Election Campaign Surpasses One-Million Dollars

Governor Ernie Fletcher has raised more than one-million dollars for his re-election campaign.

That's according to a report filed today with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance.

Fletcher said says his fundraising is going well since August. That's when state prosecutors agreed to a deal that dropped criminal charges against him.

He was accused of official misconduct, political discrimination
and conspiracy. The charges were part of an investigation into
allegations that his administration illegally doled out jobs to
political supporters.
