Conway to ply for campaign cash on Internet


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Democratic Senate candidate Jack Conway is planning his own round of Web-based fundraising next month, borrowing a tactic from his Republican opponent's political playbook.

Conway's campaign said Tuesday it plans to tap the Internet for a fundraiser on Sept. 7. The Louisville Democrat is hoping to raise at least $260,000 with contributions from across Kentucky and the country during a 24-hour period.

His campaign admits it is repeating a tactic pioneered by Rand Paul's father, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, and used repeatedly by Rand Paul since the primary to raise money for his Senate campaign.

Most recently, Rand Paul raised more than $250,000 from two days of Web-based fundraising last week. The Bowling Green eye doctor raised more than $1.2 million in a series of Internet fundraiser's during the GOP primary.
