LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Governor Steve Beshear and Lieutenant Governor Jerry Abramson won't be at next week's picnic in Fancy Farm.
The political picnic includes an afternoon of speeches from the state's top Democrats and Republicans.
The state Democratic party chairman didn't give a reason why Beshear and Abramson won't be there, but just says they're unable to make the event. He says Beshear will be there next year.
The picnic is a fundraiser for St. Jerome Church that draws about 10,000 people and raises about $250,000.
Senate leader Mitch McConnell and Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes both say they'll be at the picnic.
