FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Democratic nominee for governor Jack Conway began flexing his financial muscle on Tuesday by airing a pair of TV ads statewide.

The ads are the first of the 2015 general election campaign and highlight Conway’s family history and his record as the state’s attorney general. In one 60-second spot Conway talks about his family history in western Kentucky where his father owned a seed business. In another 30-second spot he touts his efforts as attorney general to combat Medicaid fraud and his recent plan to bring jobs to the state.

Conway enters the race for governor in a much stronger financial position than Republican nominee Matt Bevin, who survived a brutal four-way primary in May. Disclosure records show Conway has about $1.4 million available to spend while Bevin has about $15,000.
