Conway Serious About Governor's Race
FRANKFORT, KY - One of Kentucky's most recognizable political figures has announced that would-be candidates that they may have to get past him if they want to be the state's next governor.
Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway told The Associated Press Monday that he's taking "a very, very serious look" at running in the 2015 election, a move that could ward off some of potential challengers for his party's nomination to replace Gov. Steve Beshear.
Three statewide campaigns in the past five years have enhanced Conway's name recognition. Altogether, Conway spent about $10 million in those races. About twice that much was spent against him, making him a familiar face to nearly every family in Kentucky.
