Washington (CNN) - In the bitterly fought battle for Kentucky's Senate seat, a race that was highlighted by the controversial Aqua Buddha ad, Democrat Jack Conway conceded to Rand Paul "graciously" in Senator-elect Paul's own words to CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.
But in front of supporters Tuesday night, Conway vowed to fight for campaign finance reform, which he said was one of the reasons that lead to his defeat.
He claimed he was outspent 5-to-1 by outside groups that pumped roughly six million dollars into his opponent's campaign. Conway, who serves as Kentucky's Attorney General, lashed out at the effects of the Citizens United Supreme Court case, calling it "awful," and said that "it takes democracy further away from the people." The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last January in favor of unlimited spending by corporations and unions in campaigns.
