FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican James Comer says he has raised more than $1 million for his campaign for governor.

The state agriculture commissioner reported Monday he raised more than $555,000 in the three-month fundraising period that ended Dec. 31. Comer raised more than $500,000 the month after he announced his candidacy, for a total of just under $1.1 million. A campaign news release did not say how much money the campaign had available to spend after expenses.

Former Louisville Metro Councilman Hal Heiner is the only other announced Republican in the race. He loaned his campaign $4 million during the summer. Attorney General Jack Conway is the only major Democratic candidate to file for governor, along with Lexington engineer Geoff Young.

The primary is May 19, and the general election is Nov. 3.
