LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Jack Conway says he raised more than $750,000 in his first fundraising quarter as a 2015 Democratic candidate for governor.
The announcement comes almost two weeks after Conway announced endorsements from some of the state's most well-known Democratic politicians.
Conway noted his campaign has only held two fundraising events since announcing his candidacy, reiterating his promise not to interfere with the fundraising efforts of Kentucky Democrats trying to maintain control of the state House of Representatives.
Conway is the only Democrat to announce his candidacy so far. But Democratic House Speaker Greg Stumbo said Tuesday he has delayed announcing his decision on whether to run for governor because he is focused solely on raising money for Democratic House candidates. He said personal ambition should never outweigh the bigger picture.
