PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- Another large western Kentucky church barbecue will soon put the spotlight on politics. U.S. Senate candidates Jack Conway and Rand Paul are expected to speak Sept. 11 at the St. John Catholic Church picnic in Paducah.

Earlier this month, the two kicked off the fall campaign in the western Kentucky town of Fancy Farm, where a church picnic there has become an annual rite of passage for candidates.

The Paducah Sun says some 5,000 pounds of pork, mutton and chicken barbecue will be on hand for the crowd at St. John, located just south of the town of Lone Oak in McCracken County.

Conway, a Democrat, and Paul, a Republican, are in a hotly contested race for the seat now being held by GOP Sen. Jim Bunning, 78, who is retiring after two terms.
