Ashley Judd Decides Not to Run in Kentucky Senate Race
Hollywood activist Ashley Judd said today she will not enter the US Senate race in Kentucky.
Poor Sean Hannity will be devastated.
USA Today reported:
Ashley Judd said Wednesday she will not run for the U.S. Senate against Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.
The actress-activist, who had been considering running for the Democratic nomination, announced her decision on Twitter.
“After serious and thorough contemplation, I realize that my responsibilities and energy at this time need to be focused on my family,” Judd said. “Regretfully, I am currently unable to consider a campaign for the Senate.”
Democrats have made McConnell, the Senate’s top Republican, a prime target for defeat in 2014. Judd, who grew up in Kentucky but no longer lives there, had been making the rounds in the state and in Washington assessing the race with the help of pollsters, Democratic lawmakers and strategists.
