Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul has angered a small-town Kentucky church by saying he and other politicians who attended its fundraising picnic had to worry about having beer thrown on them.

Paul told conservative radio personality Sean Hannity Tuesday night that the picnic at St. Jerome Parish was wild and that people boo the politicians. He also said they worried beer and other objects would be thrown at them.

The picnic does not serve alcohol as it's in a dry area.

Parishioner Mark Wilson called for Paul to retract the unflattering comments. He said they might discourage families from attending the picnic.

The picnic has been a good fundraiser for the parish for 130 years. In that time, it has evolved as the traditional kickoff of the fall campaign season in Kentucky.
