LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway
had about 10 times more campaign cash in the bank to spend than his
Republican challenger heading into the stretch run of their
campaign, according to their finance reports.
The report covering an approximately two-week period ending in
late October showed that Conway had $174,823 in campaign funds in
the bank, while Republican challenger Todd P'Pool had $17,610 on
P'Pool campaign manager David Ray said Monday the challenger has
raised a substantial amount since the report.
According to the report filed with the Kentucky of Registry of
Election Finance, Conway banked $106,181 between Oct. 8 and Oct. 24
and more than $817,000 since the May primary election.
P'Pool took in just more than $30,000 during the period and
nearly $522,000 since the primary election.
Conway campaign spokeswoman Allison Haley says the fundraising
success indicates voter confidence in Conway.
