MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) - Democrats are turning up the heat on
Governor Fletcher as the annual Fancy Farm picnic in western
Kentucky gets underway.
Democratic State Auditor Crit Luallen called Fletcher's term the
most embarrassing and incompetent in the state's history. She was
speaking at a Democratic dinner last night. WKYT-TV will air extensive coverage of the Fancy Farm political events during its 6pm and 11pm newscasts.
Fletcher is firing back today. At a G-O-P breakfast, he called
Luallen's comments the most hypocritical thing he's ever heard.
The two parties will continue their bickering later in the day
at the annual Fancy Farm picnic, which signals the start of
Kentucky's fall campaign season.
