Barbs Traded at Fancy Farm

"Alison Lundergan Grimes and Mitch McConnell traded barbs, Agriculture Commissioner James Comer announced he will run for governor and Rand Paul read poetry," the Lexington Herald Leader reports.

"While Comer stole the show with Republicans at the end of Saturday's Fancy Farm picnic in front of a record crowd, the U.S. Senate race was the main event as supporters of McConnell and Grimes got rowdy early and stayed that way through the speeches."

"Despite its reputation, Fancy Farm was not the firehose of vitriol aimed at the candidates that organizers feared and reporters from all over the globe hoped for, and none of the major candidates committed any gaffes that will haunt them from here to November."
