Last year's Fancy Farm Picnic speeches
FANCY FARM, Ky. -
It's pretty quiet right now in Fancy Farm, but picnic organizer Mark Wilson expects the first weekend in August to be the largest and loudest in its 134 year history.
"This year we anticipate it's going to be a doozy," he said.
Wilson says this year's attention requires a bigger stage. He tore down the previous platform.
"We want something that's going to kind of show a touch of class for here at Fancy Farm," Wilson said.
The buzz today inside the Arcade Barber Shop in Paducah was all about Tuesday night's election results and a look to November.
"It's a dog-eat-dog political world out there," said Kurt Penner.
He's an undecided voter. He said money wins elections and isn't focused on the ads, but the issues.
"The money is the tall tale of the story and it's going to buy the stories and sell the stories and I would hope that people are transparent enough to see that," he said.
McConnell spent $9 million against Matt Bevin while Grimes spent about $3 million on her primary opponents. In a race that seems up for grabs, Penner says money isn't an option.
"The money talks and the rest walks," he said.
