U.S. Senate Hopefuls To Speak At Fancy Farm

From Chad Lampe, Kentucky Public Radio

U.S. Senate candidates Rand Paul and Jack Conway have confirmed they will both attend the annual Fancy Farm Picnic in western Kentucky next month. Fancy Farm Picnic Political Chairman Mark Wilson says he expects stronger attendance this year because of the high-profile race on the November ballot.

St. Jerome Catholic Church sponsors the Graves County picnic, which includes food, games and political stump speeches. It raises an average of $200,000 every year.

It will be held on Saturday, August 7.
