State-Journal: Observers Note Forgy As One Of Fancy Farm's All-Time Greats

The State-Journal had a great preview of Fancy Farm this week in which in noted that Republican Tom Utterback recognized Larry Forgy as one of the all-time great stump speakers:

Democrats will certainly attack Fletcher over the Merit System scandal
which resulted from the investigation of alleged violations of state hiring
laws, Forgy said.

"I think the governor's integrity is beyond reproach," he said.

He attended the picnic many times between 1966 and 1995, and Utterback
heard speeches from many candidates, including "Happy" Chandler. However, Forgy
is still one of the best stump speakers, he said.
