Some of Kentucky’s most well-known politicians say they won’t be there, but a big crowd is still expected at this year’s Fancy Farm political picnic in Graves County this weekend.
Fancy Farm is annually Kentucky’s largest political rally and it’s held at St. Jerome Catholic Church. Picnic Chairman Todd Hayden says the absence of people like Governor Steve Beshear, Lieutenant Governor Jerry Abramson and Senator Rand Paul won’t hurt attendance as much as some might think.
Haden says the church pulls in about 220 to 240-thousand dollars each year, but they only net about half that amount.
Those who confirmed they will be here include Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who is not up for re-election this year.
