After Comer Gets in Governor's Race, Rand Paul Staying out of Primary

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) -- Another familiar person who will be at the annual Fancy Farm Picnic is Bowling Green resident and junior Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky.

Paul was making his way west toward Fancy Farm Friday and stopped in Hopkinsville to talk about issues he's working on right now with the local Chamber of Commerce.

This included his thoughts on immigration and restoring voting rights back to some convicted felons.

After his speech, we asked him about Ag Commissioner James Comer's announcement to run for Governor that he is making Saturday.

"I'm not going to get involved in the primary for the governorship. I know Jamie Comer and have a great deal of respect for him. I also know and like Hal Heiner too, and then there are rumors Cathy Bailey might run and of course they're all friends, so I'm probably going to try and stay out of it," said Sen. Paul.

Sen. Paul along with several other politicians will be speaking at Fancy Farm.

The event will be headlined by the high profile senate race between Sen. Mitch McConnell and democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes.
