Gov. Bevin says he will skip Fancy Farm this year

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Gov. Matt Bevin says he will not attend Fancy Farm this year.

A letdown to some as the annual summertime event forces politicians to trade insults on statewide television, while enduring a crowd of hecklers.

One of Bevin's top critics, Attorney General Andy Beshear, has already confirmed for Fancy Farm. 

Bevin spoke last year, but Beshear skipped the event to attend his kid's play.

Fancy Farm is the first Saturday in August.
