Democrat Jack Conway hires campaign manager for governor

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Democrat Jack Conway has hired an experienced political operative to manage his 2015 campaign for governor.

It is the second Kentucky campaign for Adam Sullivan, who was the statewide field director in 2007 for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bruce Lunsford. Lunsford lost to current Gov. Steve Beshear in the primary that year. But in a news release from the campaign, Beshear’s 2011 campaign manager praised the hire and said Sullivan knows what it takes to win in Kentucky.

Conway said he hired Sullivan because he has a proven record of success. Sullivan most recently worked for former U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu in Louisiana and has four successful congressional races under his belt, including a campaign for now U.S. Sen. Kristen Gillibrand of New York.

Conway faces former congressional candidate Geoff Young in the May 19 primary.
