Big Lib Ashley Judd Wants to Run for Senate Against Mitch McConnell
Hollywood liberal Ashley Judd is making plans to run for US senate against Republican leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky.
Judd is a big anti-gun lib. She cut ads for some wackadoodle leftist group against Sarah Palin in 2008.
Judd would rather see the wolves poisoned than shot. Now, that’s humane.
The Politico reported:
Ashley Judd vs. Mitch McConnell?
It might not be as far-fetched as you think.
The Hollywood movie star and eighth-generation Kentuckian is seriously exploring a 2014 run for the Senate to take on the powerful Republican leader, four people familiar with the matter tell POLITICO. In recent weeks, Judd has spoken with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) about the possibility of a run, has discussed a potential bid with a Democratic pollster and has begun to conduct opposition research on herself to see where she’s most vulnerable in the Bluegrass State, sources say.
Whether Judd jumps into the race remains far from certain. She’s reportedly also weighing whether to wait until 2016 to instead take on freshman Sen. Rand Paul, sources say.
But if Judd does become a candidate, she would be the biggest celebrity to run for the Senate since Al Franken’s successful 2008 bid for the Minnesota seat.
