Ashley Judd doesn't rule out challenge to U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell
Actress Ashley Judd, said to be mulling a campaign against U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., refused to rule out a run against him in 2014 in a one-sentence statement to The Courier-Journal.
“I cherish Kentucky, heart and soul, and while I’m very honored by the consideration, we have just finished an election, so let’s focus on coming together to keep moving America’s families, and especially our kids, forward,” Judd said in a statement released by her publicist.
Judd is being touted by Democrats as a possible opponent for McConnell, the Senate minority leader who will be running for a sixth term.
“If you had an Ashley Judd-McConnell race, I think it would be as high profile a race as Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown,” U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth of Louisville said in an interview Wednesday, referring to the Senate race in Massachusetts.
