Mark Hebert Reports A Huge Presence Of Forgy Supporters At Fancy Farm

The excitement behind Larry Forgy's upcoming U.S. Senate campaign at Fancy Farm made it clear that the grassroots activists of the Republican Party are lining up behind Larry Forgy as he mounts a primary campaign against Mitch McConnell. Mark Hebert of WHAS reports:

Most talked about signs: On the two lane road to Fancy Farm, there were
three signs saying "Vote "straight" Republican. Vote Forgy. U.S. Senator '08."
At the picnic there were fliers placed on dozens of windshields saying "Vote A
Straight Republican. Vote Forgy U.S. Senator '08."

Mitch McConnell is married to U.S. Labor Secretary Elaine Chao and has
daughers from a previous marriage.

Forgy told me he had nothing to do with the signs but suspected one of his
supporters from Leslie County did. He said he was glad to see Mitch McConnell
actively supporting Ernie Fletcher, but wouldn't rule out, or in, the
possibility of running against McConnell in a G.O.P. primary next year.
