Highlights from the 2010 Fancy Farm Picnic

August 12, 2010

The unofficial start to the fall campaign season in Kentucky – the Fancy Farm Picnic – drew one of its largest crowds in years, organizers said, and set the stage for candidates to gear up their push toward November.

The crowd certainly seemed larger to me, and not just from the addition of national media that have taken a keen interest in Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race this year. I had hoped to be able to post updates during the speeches on Saturday, but my iPhone wasn’t up to the task. Hopefully next year will go more smoothly (and be cooler).

I did shoot some video – a first for me – and put together this brief look at a few highlights from the day. Included in the video, along with Democrat Jack Conway and Republican Rand Paul, both candidates for U.S. Senate, are Mark Wilson, one of the picnic’s organizers, Charlotte Whittaker of Hartford, who was joined by a group of seniors and AARP members from Ohio County, and Todd Inman of Owensboro, vice chairman of the Daviess County Republican Party.
