LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- Facing a long re-election fight against recently declared Democratic candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell's campaign tells WHAS11 News he will attend the annual Fancy Farm political speeches event on August 3 and challenged Grimes to attend.

"Sen. McConnell is proud to participate in Fancy Farm, a wonderful Kentucky tradition," campaign manager Jesse Benton.  "We invite Secretary Grimes to join us so we can hear her views on Obamacare, the War on Coal, the Second Amendment and all the other critical issues facing Kentucky."

The only other statewide elected politician to confirm with Fancy Farm picnic organizers so far is Attorney General Jack Conway.
