FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Democrat Jack Conway raised more than $900,000 in the first two weeks of October to increase his fundraising lead over Republican Matt Bevin by $5 million.
Conway has raised just over $7 million for his campaign so far, compared to $1.9 million for Bevin. Just over half of Bevin’s contributions came from his personal wealth.
Conway has about $800,000 left to spend while Bevin has $341,000. Both candidates have spent most of their money on TV ads as they try to reach voters in the final month of the campaign.
Democrats have raised more money than their Republican opponents in most of this year’s statewide elections. The exceptions are Republican agriculture commissioner candidate Ryan Quarles and Republican treasurer candidate Allison Ball.
