Conway increases TV ad spending in campaign’s final month
Democrat Jack Conway has significantly increased his TV ad spending in the final month of his campaign for governor.
Conway’s campaign has spent $2.5 million to air more than 7,000 TV ads through Monday according to an analysis by the Center for Public Integrity. Republican Matt Bevin has spent $1.3 million to air more than 4,500 ads.
That’s up about $200,000 for Bevin from two weeks ago, but Conway’s total jumped by about $800,000 in that time.
The data doesn’t include radio, online or direct mail ads or TV ads aired on local cable systems. The estimates also don’t include production costs.
Conway has $2.3 million in cash available to spend according to the latest disclosure reports. Bevin has more than $674,000 available, most coming from his personal wealth.
