Will Ashley Judd Run for Senate?
The election just ended, but already there's talk about what could be in store for 2014 — and that talk includes actress Ashley Judd.
The Kentucky native is being floated as a possible candidate to challenge Sen. Mitch McConnell, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.
"If you had an Ashley Judd-McConnell race, I think it would be as high profile as a race as Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown," said U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth from Kentucky. "The money would pour in here as soon as she entered the race."

However, Judd danced around the possibility of a Senate run in a statement to US Weekly. "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 and keep moving America's families, and especially our kids, forward," she said.
Sen. McConnell is taking the possible competition in stride. "Senator McConnell and his wife are big fans of Ashley Judd's movies and appreciate her energy, particularly when it comes to getting young people engaged in the political process," said the senator's campaign manager.
