Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway enjoys a sizable cash advantage over Republican Matt Bevin as the two men head down the home stretch of the governors race.

Bevin reported late Wednesday night, the deadline for the first finance reports since July, that his campaign brought in more than $1.6 million, which appears to include more than $900,000 in contributions from Bevin himself.

The Republican candidate enters the last four weeks of the race with just more than $670,000 in cash on hand, leaving him well short of Conway's cash position.

Conway reported earlier Wednesday that his campaign brought in more than $6 million during the same period, with about $2.3 million in cash for the final sprint.

Independent candidate Drew Curtis more than $50,000 for the fundraising period, but he has only about $1,900 in cash on hand.

According to the filing, Bevin appears to have contributed to his campaign multiple times through the month of September as the fundraising period came to an end.

Bevin contributed $650,000 on Sept. 30, $175,000 on Sept. 28 and $120,000 on Sept. 17.
