GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– Teachers plan to show up in force at the popular Fancy Farm picnic Saturday, but Governor Matt Bevin won’t be there.

Leaders of the group #120strong say they expect at least 200 supporters to attend the event, which marks the traditional start of the fall campaign season in Kentucky. 

Candidates from both parties will share the stage before a crowd of potential hecklers as their speeches are broadcast on statewide television.

Former general and new NRA President Oliver North spoke at a pre-Fancy Farm event Friday night at Murray State University.
