Fancy Farm Gears Up

Fancy Farm, KY – The 129th Annual Fancy Farm Picnic is tomorrow. This year's main attraction is the race for the U.S. Senate. Republican Senator Jim Bunning recently announced he won't run for a third term, leaving the field open. GOP contenders Secretary of State Trey Grayson and Bowling Green doctor Rand Paul will make speeches at the political event. Among Democratic candidates scheduled to speak are Attorney General Jack Conway and Lieutenant Governor Dan Mongiardo. Governor Steve Beshear won't be at Fancy Farm this year, but his 2012 running mate Jerry Abramson will attend. The picnic activities start at 10 AM, and the political speaking begins at 2 PM.
