Julian Carroll, a Democrat who has not confirmed that he will attend.

The legislative candidates will be followed by those running for the Midway City Council. Then Andy Barr of Lexington, the Republican nominee for Congress, will speak. Democratic Rep. Ben Chandler of Versailles. Chandler's campaign said today that he would not attend, due to previously scheduled engagements, said Sarah J.
