Conway seeks to capitalize on Palin visit

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jack Conway is trying to capitalize on Sarah Palin's recent visit to Kentucky to build up his own campaign's finances.

Conway sent an e-mail appeal to his supporters on Tuesday, asking them to offset the fundraiser Palin headlined last week for his Republican opponent, Rand Paul.

Paul's campaign hasn't said how much was raised at the private fundraiser that Palin attended on Thursday, the same day the former Alaska governor spoke to a gospel music convention in Louisville.

Conway said in his fundraising pitch that he's been attacked in ads by outside groups including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for supporting the health care overhaul. Both campaigns are making big fundraising pushes to finance an expected barrage of television ads.
