Fancy Farm Preview From Kenny Colston

The annual Fancy Farm Picnic in western Kentucky threatens to be a tad dull this year for regular attendees accustomed to fiery political rhetoric and mud-slinging.  The reason:  a curious absence of many prominent politicians.  Most of Kentucky's elected Democrats announced plans to skip this year's picnic, and there will be few prominent Republicans present.In this clip from Byline Friday, Kentucky Public Radio's Kenny Colston discusses some of the factors shaping the picnic this year, and the political ramifications of skipping it.
