LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Attorney General Jack Conway has won the Democratic nomination in Kentucky's U.S. Senate race and will face tea party Republican Rand Paul in this fall's general election.

With 98 percent of precincts reporting, Conway had 224,217 votes or 44 percent, to Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo's 216,722 votes or 43 percent.

Conway, a Louisville attorney and businessman before being elected attorney general three years ago, spent more than $2.4 million on the race.

Paul defeated Republican establishment favorite Trey Grayson in the Republican primary, a closely watched race that was a test of the tea party movement's strength.
