Kentucky Milestone Reached With Candidate’s Own Cash

It looks like Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway was determined to break $2 million in year-to-date mark in time for the quarterly campaign finance deadline no matter what it took.

According to his third-quarter fundraising report, on the last day of the quarter, Conway loaned his campaign $125,000, which put him over the $2 million mark in his Senate bid.

Last week, Conway’s camp sent out a statement to supporters titled “Conway Breaks $2 Million Mark!” but the release didn’t note that the attorney general dipped into his own pocket to achieve that goal.
