Fancy Farm

Most of Kentucky's elected Democrats will skip this weekend's annual Fancy Farm picnic. As of Wednesday, House Speaker Greg Stumbo is the only high profile Democrat scheduled to speak.

It appears many of the big political names won't head to West Kentucky's Fancy Farm picnic in a little more than a week. The annual  political picnic is usually a great place for the state’s biggest political names to gather and sling mud.

An overseas economic trip will prevent Governor Steve Beshear from participating in this year’s Fancy Farm political speaking. The governor’s office announced that Beshear will be in Germany and France for the next few weeks to encourage companies there to bring business to Kentucky.
