For me to mention Fancy Farm, Kentucky on this blog — or the annual Fancy Farm Picnic — is no surprise.
I grew up there.
But for Politico Magazine to list this year’s Fancy Farm Picnic as one of the 14 dates to watch in 2014?
There are no Fancy Farm natives on staff at Politico. No, the Picnic earned its spot on merit — namely, the race for minority leader Mitch McConnell’s seat in the Senate.
If he survives the GOP primary in May, picnic goers can expect even livelier than usual stump speeches between McConnell and his Democratic challenger, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.
And you didn’t just hear it from me.
