No wonder Attorney General Jack Conway (D) was keeping quiet about his fundraising numbers.

The Kentucky Senate candidate raised only $215,684 in the first three months of 2010, his campaign said Friday. That's less than half what the leading Republican, Secretary of State Trey Grayson, pulled down. It's also short of what his main primary rival raised.

Lt. Gov. Dan Mongiardo (D) hauled in $312,000 in the first quarter.

The only bright spot for Conway is that he now has $1.3 million cash on hand -- roughly $200,000 more than Grayson.

The Kentucky primary is May 18.
