AP Interview: Conway Serious About Governor's Race

One of Kentucky's most recognizable political figures is letting a bevy of would-be candidates know 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 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 ID. Altogether, Conway spent about $10 million in those races, largely on TV advertising that built his brand. And Conway had about twice that much spent against him, making him a familiar face to nearly every family in Kentucky.
