Rand Paul to speak at Fancy Farm

Posted:

Republican Rand Paul has accepted an invitation to speak at Kentucky's premiere political event, the annual Fancy Farm picnic in western Kentucky.

Paul, a Bowling Green eye doctor, is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jim Bunning.

Fancy Farm picnic political chairman Mark Wilson said he still doesn't have a confirmation from Paul's Democratic opponent, Attorney General Jack Conway.

Both Conway and Paul spoke at the event last year.  The Fancy Farm picnic, a fundraiser for the local Catholic parish, has served as the traditional kickoff of the fall election season in Kentucky.
