Rand Paul will not attend Fancy Farm Picnic

Senator Rand Paul says he will not attend this year's Fancy Farm Picnic.

WAVE TV reports Paul will be in New Hampshire that weekend.

We contacted Fancy Farm's political speech chairman, Mark Wilson, who said he was shocked to hear Paul's decision.

We also have a call into the Paul campaign.

New Hampshire is an early presidential primary state.

Paul is one of 15 GOP presidential candidates.
